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.
