Law Firm:

We’ve shaped important Romanian legislation, have created best market practices in many fields and have worked on ground-breaking domestic and international transactions. Our close-knit team knows the domestic and regional markets well and are used to complex cross-border deals.

Local expertise and global reach.

In 2006, we merged with a leading local firm to form Clifford Chance Badea and today 45 lawyers work in our Bucharest office. We’re a leading firm in the domestic market and regularly work on complex domestic and cross-border mandates, often in extended teams that include colleagues from our international network. Our full-service offering covers banking & finance, capital markets, corporate and M&A, real estate and litigation, and our practice areas are regularly ranked in Tier One in the legal directories.

An experienced team that delivers demanding transactions.

Our senior lawyers have worked together for over 10 years and this close-knit team has seen, and has often been closely involved in, many changes in Romania’s legal and business landscape. We have worked together on a wide range of high-profile transactions and helped write national laws and regulations that govern capital markets, securitisations, insolvency, covered bonds, global depository receipts and the structuring of PPP projects.

Clients rely on this range and depth of experience when they turn to us for advice on demanding, often first-of-a-kind, deals. Two innovative examples from 2013 include the USD$517 million dual-listing IPO of Romgaz shares on the Bucharest Stock Exchange and GDRs on the London Stock Exchange – the first time shares in a state-owned company have been sold on an international exchange, and the EUR€122 million bond-issue by UniCredit Țiriac, a Romanian retail bank, the largest ever in the Romanian market.

Recent high profile regional and international deals include Aviva’s sale of its Romanian operations to US insurance giant MetLife in 2013 and Anheuser-Busch InBev’s USD$2.2 billion sale of its Central European operations to CVC Capital Partners in 2009.

We have also worked on every Romanian sovereign-debt issue in the last 15 years, including the establishment of the EUR€7 billion MTN Programme.
