POP PEPA advises on Millennium Building fire

July 20, 2009

POP PEPA has been retained by West Group Architecture in regards to a 50 million euro damage claim by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Immobilienfonds mbH (DEGI, member of the Aberdeen Group).  The case concerns a fire that completely engulfed the Millennium Business Centre, located in downtown Bucharest, on the night of June 26, 2009.

The Millennium building is considered one of the signature office tower projects in modern Bucharest.  With a multitude of parties, the highly complex lawsuit is the largest legal case in Romanian history to date dealing with an office building fire.
