Dispute Resolution

Our dispute resolution practice, led by Gabriela Mina, is steadily carving a reputation as one of the most sought after teams in Bucharest through a string of high-profile successes for international clients and a caseload which includes some of the most high-profile domestic disputes.

The team’s recent cases include:

These disputes straddle the public and private spheres involving complex issues of health insurance and state contributions by pharmaceutical companies.
  • Representing the Romanian subsidiary of one of the biggest power sector players in Europe in a case related to performance of an energy sale and purchase agreement.
  • Representing an important Romanian territorial and administrative division in arbitration proceedings before the Bucharest International Court of Arbitration in relation to claims under a contract for major road works.
