A client who is facing litigation,
whether as plaintiff or defendant, must consider a number of cost/benefit and risk factors that are likely to impact the bottom line.
Issues such as potential recovery, timing, costs and expenses, and possible decisions or orders could have significant impact on both operations and reputation in Romania – all of which can be challenging to predict.
BirișGoran’s reputation stems primarily from its excellence in “deal entry” and facilitating the closings of transactions, but we also advise on “deal exits”, should there be a falling out in our clients’ day-to-day business affairs. We have experienced litigators on our team who are able to minimize the uncertainties by providing a solid foundation of practical experience. This enables us to help our clients navigate all possibilities and options available to them in this unfamiliar environment.
We provide our clients with comprehensive advice at every stage of a controversy; whether it is proactive problem avoidance, effective negotiation and settlement, or vigorous advocacy both in court and before governmental agencies and tribunals. We also have experience in handling domestic and international commercial arbitrations.
A forte of our practice is tax litigation, where we currently represent institutional clients and high-net-worth individuals against the tax authorities on litigation related to VAT reimbursements, excise and other fiscal obligations and tax audits, for EUR multi-million amounts. As particular detail to support the “innovative” attribute of our litigation practice, in some administrative and tax disputes our arguments found successful in court determined the Romanian state to amend the legislation in the energy and tax sectors.
