Dispute Resolution Lawyers

CMS has a wealth of experience across CEE in helping clients to resolve their disputes. Our lawyers from 15 offices in the region represent multinationals and leading local players in a wide variety of complex disputes ranging from international arbitrations through high-stake class actions to criminal investigations.

Whether you are from the construction, life sciences, technology, energy, financial services or automotive industry, you will find in our CEE dispute resolution team many industry specialists who understand well your market and the business context of your dispute. We take pride in assisting our clients in dispute prevention but, if necessary, we know how to prevail in the courtroom. In 2015 Chambers Europe listed CMS in Band 1 for Dispute Resolution in CEE.

One of the best in the country.
Chambers, 2019

In CEE our dispute resolution lawyers are not just litigators and arbitration specialists, but business-minded problem solvers. We represent clients from all industries before courts, arbitral tribunals, public prosecutors and regulatory authorities. Our in-depth industry knowledge combined with procedural savvy, outstanding advocacy skills and high efficiency make our CEE Disputes team invincible in the eyes of many clients of ours.

Whether you are faced with corporate, commercial, labour, intellectual property, competition, insurance or product liability disputes, we can support you in any CEE jurisdiction, obtain injunctions and deal with enforcement procedures for foreign judgements and arbitral awards. Sectors in which we have a particularly strong track record of providing dispute resolution services include construction and infrastructure, financial institutions and services, life sciences, energy, technology, media and telecommunications, and consumer products. Most importantly, apart from the dispute resolution services we offer our clients sophisticated dispute prevention solutions as well as early case assessment services by the use of a cutting edge software tool called CMS Evidence

Our Dispute Resolution Team in Hungary is one of the largest in the country. Our specialised litigators master civil procedure and/or criminal law, and are very familiar with disputes emerging in their specific industry sector. We are a leading firm in arbitration and white-collar investigations, and are proud to deliver top quality legal advice in every case we handle.
