The firm

Since its formation in 2002, Sora & Asociatii has established itself as a full-service commercial legal provider with offices in Bucharest, the capital city and the most important industrial and financial centre of Romania.

However, Sora & Asociatii Law Firm also has a strong legal network in all historical regions of Romania, having outsourced offices in other major cities such as Timisoara, Cluj, Iasi, Brasov and Constanta.

Sora & Asociatii Law Firm is a proud member of the legal network International Jurists, always in contact with the network members which now consist of 35 firms with more than 1,250 lawyers and support staff in 32 countries, ensuring the delivery of high-quality advice and assistance in a broad range of local and international legal areas.

Sora & Asociatii Law Firm has vast experience in many fields due to the various client domains of activity. As a result, its professionals develop strategies that work because they know and understand the many facets of the Romanian business environment as viewed from a broader international point of view.

Apart from its commitment to personalised client service and the firm’s reputation for delivering innovative and practical solutions, it delivers outstanding value to its clients, building strong relationships, and promoting a positive, progressive and creative working environment.

Areas of practice

Dispute resolution: the firm is focused on arbitration or litigation disputes related to the construction area. It has successfully taken cases from the initial claim phase, in front of the Dispute Adjudication Board (in cases under FIDIC regulations), all throughout the negotiation phase, also representing its clients in arbitration cases in front of arbitral tribunals from Paris (ICC), Vienna (VIAC) or Bucharest (CICA) or in front of Romanian courts.

The firm is currently involved in several multi-million arbitration disputes between contractors and designers, situations which require complex knowledge of both fields: construction and arbitration.

It is successfully fighting for its clients’ rights in disputes against the Romanian National Company of Road Infrastructure Management (Compania Nationala de Administrare a Infrastructurii Rutiere S.A.- C.N.A.I.R.).

Apart from heading the law firm, Radu Sora has also acted as a Romanian arbitrator at The Court of International Commercial Arbitration attached to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Romania.

PPP and procurement: expert legal advice covers all stages of a public tender, from the initial structuring phase, including legislative and regulatory issues, the development of the procedure, up to the point of contract negotiations as well as contract performance issues.

It provides legal assistance for both public authorities (eg preparing tender books and offers, drafting works, services and PPP contracts) and private operators and investors (drafting applications and bids, obtaining clarifications during tender procedures, administrative and judicial claims).

However, the firm’s main activity is to represent its clients’ interests in front of the National Council for Solving Complaints (Romanian: Consiliul National pentru Solutionarea Contestatiilor – CNSC).

Its leading lawyers, Aniela Sora and Larisa Antimescu, have obtained, through hard work and dedication, a significant number of expert qualifications in the field of PPP and procurement.

It has been especially successful in challenging public authorities’ decisions in important cases concerning areas such as construction, medical equipment supply, IT and education, but it also has vast experience in almost all other fields of public procurement from Romania.
