Our experiences teached us that patience and determination can help you overcome the difficulties of the romanian procedural legal system and legal gapes can be turned in advantages.
Experience also teaches us that winning a case in a Court of Law does not guarantee our client’s full recovery of the debts and costs, therefore we recommend litigation only after a pre-screening of the debtor’s financial situation and after understanding the client’s real financial situation, consulting with him while we help him take the best decision for his business.
