Dispute Resolution

CMS has a leading and experienced Dispute Resolution Team across CEE. Lawyers across 15 offices in the region collaborate closely on advising high-profile multinational and regional clients on a wide variety of disputes from simple claims to complex, high-value litigation cases.

We can represent you in civil and commercial disputes and have particular expertise in infrastructure disputes, international arbitration and white-collar crime. The Dispute Resolution Team includes sector experts who can offer specific industry insight, for instance in insurance claims, construction litigation or disputes with regulators in the energy, telecommunications or financial services sectors.

The CMS Romania team has a long track record of achieving successful outcomes for our clients across the full range of major business disputes, with a particular focus on high-value, complex disputes. We are particularly recognised for our expertise in international arbitration, including investment treaty protection.

Unlike most major law firms, you won’t find a traditional litigation department at CMS. What you will find is a team of nearly 600 experts who share a refreshing approach to disputes resolution. Our sector-focused lawyers are not just litigators and arbitration specialists, but business-minded problem solvers.

We routinely act in all business areas before courts, arbitral tribunals and regulatory authorities. Whether you are faced with employee, corporate, intellectual property, competition or product liability disputes, we can support you in any European jurisdiction, obtain judicial assistance in foreign proceedings and deal with enforcement procedures for foreign judgements and arbitral awards.

Tech­no­logy Trans­form­a­tion – Me­dia
The me­dia sec­tor is known to be highly com­pet­it­ive, with that com­pet­i­tion driv­ing in­nov­a­tion. Older me­dia busi­nesses have had to grapple with dis­rupt­ive new entrants. And those new entrants are con­stantly work­ing to de­liv­er bet­ter and more en­ga­ging con­tent and user ex­per­i­ences to main­tain their ad­vant­age. Di­git­isa­tion has changed how me­dia com­pan­ies in­ter­act with their audi­ence in ways we could not have ima­gined just a few years ago, but this comes with risk.This re­port is a deep dive in­to the data first pro­duced for the re­port Tech­no­logy Trans­form­a­tion: Man­aging Risks in a Chan­ging Land­scape. This saw over 500 cor­por­ate coun­sel and risk man­agers sur­veyed from mul­tiple in­dus­tries across the world. Here we look in de­tail at the 75 re­spond­ents from the me­dia sec­tor, and their per­spect­ives on the risks as­so­ci­ated with busi­ness-crit­ic­al tech­no­lo­gies, in­clud­ing emer­ging tech­no­lo­gies. What did we find? Me­dia is a dy­nam­ic sec­tor and can be an early ad­op­ter of many nov­el tech­no­lo­gies as com­pan­ies push for com­pet­it­ive ad­vant­ages to cre­ate and sat­is­fy cus­tom­er de­mand. As we look to the fu­ture, the sec­tor does seem un­der­prepared in some areas, which is a po­ten­tial cause for con­cern.Down­load the Tech­no­logy Trans­form­a­tion me­dia sec­tor re­port now to read aboutThe prin­cip­al drivers in the ad­op­tion of busi­ness-crit­ic­al tech­no­logy in the me­dia sec­tor­Con­fid­ence in man­aging tech-re­lated risks among seni­or me­dia ex­ec­ut­ivesFu­ture threats from new tech­no­lo­gies like AI and block­chain­Which plans and pro­cesses me­dia com­pan­ies are put­ting in place to pro­tect tech in­fra­struc­ture­Cul­tur­al bar­ri­ers to man­aging tech risks in the me­dia sec­tor­Preferred ap­proaches to dis­pute res­ol­u­tion in the me­dia sec­tor
