TGS Baltic together with the prominent Austrian law firm Graf & Pitkowitz Rechtsanwälte successfully defended Bank Snoras before the Vienna International Arbitral Centre (VIAC) in a complex declaratory relief claim sought by another major Austrian bank. Arbitration comprised issues of applicable law, AML regulations, back-to-back loan agreements, requirements for financial institutions and difficult jurisdictional issues.

TGS Baltic was the leading counsel of the arbitration.
