Litigation

Litigation is the cornerstone of COBALT’s legal practice. We actively develop dispute management and litigation strategies, advise and represent clients in out-of-court settlement negotiations, represent clients in civil and arbitration courts, administrative and criminal proceedings, as well as before constitutional courts.

While understanding the commercial context, we help clients to ensure the optimal resolution of disputes. Our experienced dispute resolution teams cooperate with COBALT’s other practice groups to also help clients prevent conflicts from arising in the first place.

We assist clients in all business-related legal conflicts, including complex commercial, corporate and M&A disputes, real estate, construction, public procurement, trademark, copyright, patent, pharmaceutical, data protection, media and technology disputes, restructuring and insolvency, competition, employment, insurance, tax, financial services disputes, specific private wealth related disputes, including matrimonial and inheritance disputes, as well as assisting clients in white-collar cases and internal investigations.

Our international contacts with leading law firms, membership in Lex Mundi and the World Services Group, and COBALT’s own pan-Baltic cooperation enables us to effectively handle cross-border disputes.

We have accumulated unique experience in representing clients in the supreme court institutions in Europe: the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union. Cases handled by our lawyers have become a part of the jurisprudence of these courts. Our litigators have regularly been involved in novel and precedent-setting cases in front of national supreme courts.
