Strategic planning and bullet proof representation in Litigation, Arbitration & ADR

With the challenges posed by the growing speed of commercial relations as well as the ever increasing complexity of the legal framework, parties facing a pending or threatened dispute require a multidisciplinary approach as well as a thorough assessment and carefully planned strategy in order to be successful and to mitigate potential losses.

Maravela|Asociații provides the full range of services required to comprehensively address every threatening or pending dispute, starting with pre-litigation strategies and diagnostics aimed at minimizing the risks of potential conflicts and, when a conflict does arise, to achieve the amicable settlement of the same (via commercial exchanges and, where applicable, mediation, expert determination and other ADR methods) or (where this is not possible due to parties’ irremediable differences of opinion) to preconfigure a party’s leverage in a potential litigation before courts and arbitral tribunals.
