Infrastructure and Transport
Infrastructure development and upgrade are central points of concern for Romania’s further progress.
In response to the legal requirements of major international and domestic companies active in this field, our expertise mirrors the country’s potential areas of interest regarding the development of major infrastructure and transport projects, centered on road, railway, water treatment, port and airport facilities, as well as the expansion of the existing ones.
We advise clients throughout the stages of a project, from the pre-contractual phase (including full consultancy and dispute resolution related matters concerning the public procurement procedures conducted for the selection of contractors, where applicable) to the performance of contractual and post-contractual obligations.
We are known for our skilful approach to projects that are based on industry knowledge and on a continuous concern to accommodate the time pressure constraints imposed by the specificities of the transactions. Our familiarity with the Romanian contracting authorities’ practice and our ability to promptly respond to their demands and expectations recommend us as a heavyweight team.
