Litigation

Litigation is a cornerstone of the COBALT legal practice. We assist clients with a wide variety of business and trade-related litigation matters at the courts of all Baltic and Belarusian jurisdictions. We actively develop litigation strategies on behalf of our clients. We help clients to ensure optimal resolution of commercial disputes, with a focus on real estate, construction, insurance, financial services, trademarks, copyright, patents, public procurement, ICT, energy and competition law, as well as insolvency and restructuring proceedings. Our dispute resolution team represents the interests of clients in civil, administrative and criminal proceedings, as well as before our respective constitutional courts.

COBALT has accumulated a unique experience in representing clients in the supreme court institutions in Europe: European Court of Human Rights and Court of Justice of the European Union. Cases, handled by our lawyers, have become a part of jurisprudence of these Courts.

We combine extensive knowledge and experience, and our involvement goes far beyond representation in the courtroom. We have a reputation as a trustworthy partner in litigation and conflict management among local and international clients. Our unique team approach has been the key to our success. We offer clients high-level litigation and negotiation skills and expertise in the relevant substantive area of the law, insight into dispute management strategy, and an awareness of the commercial context of disputes.
