Dispute Resolution

Poland

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.

The quality of the advice is excellent. The lawyers are knowledgeable about the subject and incredibly thorough.
