Our team is dedicated to providing the highest quality legal advice and services. Building on our unique East–West expertise and our extensive experience in international dispute resolution, we are setting new standards of excellence in the market.
Our mission is to stand by our clients in their international disputes and to achieve the most favourable outcome in each matter – whether through dispute prevention, mediation, arbitration, commercial litigation, EU and ECHR litigation or other types of dispute resolution mechanisms and procedures. We vigorously represent our clients’ interests and go the extra mile to deliver on our commitment.
Thanks to our senior-heavy team and efficient structure, we are able to offer real value for money through flexible fee arrangements.
We have close ties with top law firms in Eastern and Western Europe and beyond, which enables us to form ad hoc legal teams tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients.
How we can help
We advise and assist our clients in conflict situations relating to international investment projects with the aim of preventing or avoiding legal disputes and arbitration.
Where necessary, we represent private investors and states in investor–state arbitrations pursuant to international treaties, investment contracts and national investment laws under the main arbitration rules, including the ICSID Rules, UNCITRAL Rules and ICC Arbitration Rules, as well as in ad hoc arbitral proceedings.
Arbitration and Mediation Services
Members of our team are referenced as arbitrators on the lists of various arbitral institutions and frequently sit as arbitrators and mediators under the arbitration rules of the ICC, the SCC, the Polish Chamber of Commerce and the Lewiatan Court of Arbitration.
We have sat as arbitrators and mediators in cases involving commercial lease agreements, construction, aviation, M&A disputes, and international sale of goods and financial services agreements, among others.
We advise and act as counsel in commercial arbitrations.
We have handled cases under the ICC, SCC, UNCITRAL, VIAC, LCIA, and PCC arbitration rules and under the rules of other international and national institutions in a wide range of industry sectors, including oil and gas, energy, construction, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, real estate, utilities, mining, insurance, banking, chemical products, IT, defence, FMCG, distribution, manufacturing, financial services, gaming, telecom and transportation.
Complex Commercial Litigation
We advise and represent clients in complex commercial disputes before domestic courts, especially in matters involving cross-border or international elements.
We have a deep understanding of intra-EU judicial cooperation in civil and commercial matters, including matters of jurisdiction, the taking of evidence and the enforcement of judgments. We assist our clients in coordinating their legal defences outside their home jurisdictions, working together with locally-qualified lawyers.
We act as counsel or co-counsel in a vast array of proceedings related to the annulment, setting aside and/or enforcement of arbitral awards and offer our clients asset recovery assistance.
We also have extensive experience in arbitration-related proceedings concerning interim and provisional measures, the taking of evidence and arbitrator appointment and removal.
Assistance with third party funding
We are one of the few law firms in Central and Eastern Europe with real-life experience in third-party funding.
We understand the process of third-party funding and the requirements of funders. We accompany our clients in their discussions with funders, negotiate funding agreements and handle third party–funded disputes.
Human Rights and EU Litigation
We represent clients before the General Court of the EU in proceedings for the annulment of decisions of EU institutions and in preliminary question referrals to the Court of Justice of the EU.
We also represent clients before the European Court of Human Rights in proceedings against states related to the violation of their fundamental rights.
We provide top quality legal services on terms that are affordable to Central and Eastern European clients. We offer flexible, reasonable and predictable fee arrangements best suited to the specificities of the individual case. We are prepared to discuss and adopt alternative fee arrangements and take approaches driven by the business needs and expectations of our clients.
