Civil law

The Costaș, Negru & Asociaţii lawyers’ civil partnership has managed and keeps managing a variety of civil cases, with significant results for our clients.

For example, we have developed over a decade of practice in litigation having as object the compensation based on Law no. 9/1998 (for the people displaced in 1940 from the Cadrilater), supplemented with other disputes under the reparative laws. In time, some of these disputes have evolved to the level of some ECHR complaints generated either by the violations of the right to property or by the violation of the right to settle cases within a reasonable period of time.

In line with the times, the Costaș, Negru & Asociaţii lawyers’ civil partnership developed at regional and then national level actions to recover the damages caused to the passengers of cancelled flights, according to Regulation (EC) no. 261/2004 and national civil law. Airlines that are obliged to pay damages to our customers include Lufthansa, Wizz Air, Tarom, Blue Air, Austrian Airlines or Alitalia. We have recently obtained the forcing of Wizz Air to pay significant damages for the cancellation of a flight of 50 passengers.

In the same note, we have been preoccupied, obtaining significant results, with the abusive clauses in bank credit agreements, managing to recover for our clients significant amounts of money which were unlawfully charged, successfully completing payment procedures or blocking procedures of unjust enforced execution having as a catalyst the mentioned clauses.

The attorneys of our firm successfully participate in the negotiation procedures of commercial contracts, at national or international level (for example, for the implantation of Romanian businesses in the European Union member states, USA, China, Saudi Arabia, India, for the rebranding procedures of some businesses or for the development of some businesses).

From other perspectives, our team of attorneys successfully manages complex procedures, whether they involve marital shares, successions with foreign elements, disputes related to the protection of trademarks and patents or for defending other intellectual property rights or disputes regarding the legal force and the effects of some sui generis legal acts, in the more recent practice (for example, a head of terms concluded in a real estate development process).
