“The firm’s brilliant founding partners have advised our company for over five years now with excellent results in highly specialised work. I should add that this is a go-to firm for M&A deals, for which reason we turned to them as lead counsels also for deals in neighbouring jurisdictions. They are quick, thorough and pro-business as well as very determined, innovative and friendly.”

“Gelu [Maravela] is one lawyer who I believe matches his peers at the highest levels throughout Europe. His negotiation, strategy and team leading skills are impeccable. He has impressive know-how in legal matters and was able to coordinate smoothly cross-border M&A transactions and PPPs (public-private partnership). To put it simply, having Gelu in one’s team amounts to a key success factor in any deal.”

“This is a firm that we warmly recommend to our contacts. There are several positive points, but I would name especially the following, which are very important for a business from my point of view. First of all, they are extremely competent and help with seemingly impossible matters (for example, there was a contractual matter in respect of which several large law firms said there was nothing to do; Gelu [Maravela] and Alina [Popescu] however succeeded to solve the issue in a brilliant way). Secondly, they move fast and are very efficient and organised. When we entrust them a matter we have the comfort of knowing that it is going to be very well managed. Last, but not least, they are client friendly. We are kept in the loop at all times and we easily understand what they say on legal topics (which is a challenge with many other law firms).”

“They provide valuable wide-ranging assistance on numerous corporate, complex restructuring and dispute resolution matters.”

Alina [Popescu] is extremely knowledgeable, professional and communicative and Marius [Patrascanu] is analytical and a very good strategist.”
