OUR PRACTICE AREAS
A good lawyer has to know the law and legal practice and equally has to understand his client.
That requires knowledge of the law, knowledge of people and knowledge of business, a practical mind and a creative approach to problem solving. This was always true but is even more the case in the age of artificial intelligence and digitalisation.
It also requires diplomacy, clear sightedness and frequently strong-mindedness.
We are best known for advising on Real Estate transactions in which we have very deep experience. We succeeded in solving innumerable difficult legal issues by applying the right legislation and practice. We are recognised as one of the few law firms in Romania that have specialised in proving title and successfully asserting historic property rights.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
We have worked extensively with artists and creative people and understand them – because we are creative ourselves. Understanding creative people is as importance as understanding intellectual property and entertainment law. This understanding extends to the many companies of various kinds that have intellectual property, in one way or another, at the core of their businesses. We pride ourselves on finding the right solution to protect and fight for intellectual property rights.
There are various barristers in the city of Bucharest, there are many that considers that this area of law is the most easier of all and can be practiced by anyone, even by the very unexperienced lawyers. We believe differently because we act differently. Unlike lawyers who are generalists and offer litigation as an add-on to offering legal advice, we specialise in litigation and we have a lot of experience winning cases since the 1990s. Experience means, of course, knowledge of procedure as well as substantive legislation but it also requires anticipating how judges think. It requires not just a flash of inspiration but a lot of flashes of inspiration in the past.
Under communism inheritance law was not a strong area of practice. After the 1989 revolution society changed and now there is much to inherit. Our inheritance practice springs out of our real estate business and our experience of recovering nationalised properties for their heirs. We are confident that very few law firms in Romania has had as much success in retrocession of nationalized property. For this very reason we can state that we are highly skilled in this area and as a result we can find the right solution for an individual that may face these issue before or even after death.
We have a lot of experience of advising on employment law disputes. We try to help our clients to prevent going to court, but if it is not possible to reach an agreement amicably friendly terms that we find the right angle in the law to protect our clients’ interests.
Having the knowledge of Anglo – Saxon law as well of Roman law, having the knowledge of the market and geo political context we are able to design the right understanding between the contracting parties. We always listen to the experience in the field of the client and we insert it in most appropriate way in the articles of the contract in order to cover any foresee and unforeseen issues. We believe in prevention rather than in long disputes in court.
NONPROFIT AND SOCIAL IMPACT
The experience of being involved in various non profit organization as active members or on board helped us understand this area of law that is up and coming for the Romanian society as well as for legal advisers.
