Client feedback: 32nd edition (2022/2023)


"They clearly brought to the table their M&A experience, which is rarely found in Romania as M&As are not so frequent, especially in the software business that we are in."

"The services provided by them were at the highest professional level and far beyond our expectations.

There were many categories of legal services provided, all aimed at representation in relation to potential investors."


Silviu Stoica  

"Very good negotiating skills. He probably got us out of at least two or three difficult situations."
