Proceedings before international courts
We stand out for the long list of cases in which we have represented clients before international courts: the Court of Justice of the European Union in Luxembourg, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, the Court of the Eurasian Economic Union in Minsk, and other international tribunals.
At the European Court of Human Rights, we have represented numerous clients on landmark matters with an international relevance. If proceedings before national courts have been unreasonably long, the amount of compensation received for expropriation has been unfair, the right to freedom of expression has been infringed on by authorities, or another situation has occurred which is in conflict with the European Convention on Human Rights, you can rely on our team of experienced and skilled lawyers to provide you with solutions appropriate for your individual case.
We have also successfully represented our clients before EU Court of Justice and the General Court. Our team’s track record includes winning a claim against the European Commission and successfully representing clients during preliminary ruling proceedings. Our disputes at the Court of Justice of the European Union often concern questions for which there is no case-law, and also influence landmark disputes at the national level, where the courts’ rulings set important precedents.
We are also experienced in different types of interaction with the Court of the Eurasian Economic Union, from advising clients on disputes that can be brought before the Court to providing expert opinions on matters considered by the Court. Members of our team also have experience of acting as general advisors to the Economic Court of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS Economic Court) and the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).
