“… after years of successful applying mediation he is glad to find that it became a part of his life…” - Confessedly
Languages: English, Romanian, Russian
He started to apply mediation in commercial disputes since the beginning of his career in 1996 as a legal advisor in an international enterprise. Even becoming a licensed barrister in 2001 he continued to mediate disputes as an alternative to the judicial trials in the local courts that started to lose credibility among the businessmen.
A member of the Moldova Bar Association as well as a member of the European Attorneys’ Association he believes that the true spirit of consensual dispute resolution lies in mediation.
Being specialized in commercial litigations where the participants often reside in countries with different jurisdictions, Victor has successfully handled dozens of high value disputes. The complexity of the new case ignites his professional curiosity and his experience allows him to mobilize himself quickly in order to find proper solutions for the dispute resolution.
The diversity of mediated cases successfully handled by Victor belong to such categories as international shipment of goods, customs, machinery design and installation, construction of high-technology factories, roads construction, production of wines, processing of agricultural products, water extract and processing, corporate disputes, IP, banking, insurance, taxation, labour conflicts, real estate disputes, etc. These disputes include participants from the private sector along with the public authority bodies.
Recently Victor has successfully handled a dispute regarding the franchising agreement, involving an internationally famous retail company, a bank (member of an international group of banks) and a local retail company. Apart from the IP and franchising dispute between the commercial entities Victor had to convince to come to an agreement the bank that released a high value promissory letter to one of the parties.
In addition to his commercial mediation practice Victor is member of the Bid Arbitration Court under the “Millennium Challenge Fund Moldova” (established by the US and Moldova Governments).
