Are you a business owner in the middle of a civil or criminal dispute needing specialist accounting expertise to provide support if you go to court? Unlike many accountancy firms weÕve got expert forensic accountants who specialise in this day to day. We accept instructions directly from clients whether they are claimants (pursuers), defendants (defenders) or from their legal advisers.
Our business litigation attorneys represent companies in a broad spectrum of commercial matters, including disputes with competitors, vendors, customers, or business partners. While we recognize that some disputes can only be resolved by a jury, our business litigation attorneys also regularly help clients avoid the burden and expense of litigation through creative business solutions and the use of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms such as mediation. We have represented plaintiffs and defendants in cases alleging breach of contract, fraud, unfair competition, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of warranty, and interference with economic relationships, and we defend companies in product liability cases.
Our group works closely with many of the leading international law and accounting firms. We are experienced in multi-jurisdictional litigation in which we participate on a regular basis and which we are often involved in co-ordinating. We can also provide expertise in arbitration, both international and local and, if required, a qualified arbitrator as well as a trained mediator.
The lawyers in _uca Zbrcea & Asocia_ii have amassed a lot of experience in the practice of Litigation and Arbitration, dealing with contentious matters in various areas of practice. _uca Zbrcea & Asocia_iiÕs litigation team reflects the strengths and diversity of the firmÕs considerable resources. We have represented clients at all levels of the local judicial system, from the lower courts to the High Court of Justice, as well as in special proceedings in the Constitutional Court and in international or domestic courts of arbitration. Our lawyers have an in-depth working knowledge of various arbitration procedural rules, such as ICC, UNCITRAL and ICSID and have dealt with complex substantive law issues in specific litigation circumstances.
When clients are subject to litigation, our experienced employment litigators move rapidly to reach favorable, cost-effective solutions. We engage in mediation and arbitration on behalf of our clients, negotiate settlement agreements when appropriate, and represent our clients in defense of these claims in state and federal court, before administrative agencies, and in arbitration proceedings.
