"This year marks Schoenherr's 25th anniversary in the Romanian market. It also means 13 years since the launch of the firm's dispute resolution practice in Bucharest, which has over time become one of our key areas of expertise. These promotions are part of our plan to continue developing the dispute resolution practice with a strong team of professionals." – said Sebastian Guțiu, managing partner of Schoenherr și Asociații and head of the firm's dispute resolution practice in Romania.

He has been involved in a considerable number of litigation and arbitration cases, as well as in insolvency and restructuring matters. He is experienced in contentious administrative matters (with a focus on public procurement, competition, consumer protection, and tax disputes), as well as in commercial litigation.

Her professional experience started with handling large volumes of litigation cases in connection with insurance damages. She expanded her area of expertise to also cover legal assistance in a significant number of employment litigation, commercial litigation, contentious administrative matters, as well as international arbitration (including investment arbitration).

"We have trust in the exceptional capabilities of our recently promoted team members and are confident they will continue to play an important part in the development of  our dispute resolution practice." – added Sebastian Guțiu, referring to the measures announced this year and mid-2020, when Nora Olah was promoted to senior attorney at law.
