Our Story

With 20+ years on the Romanian legal market we’ve grown to be a boutique firm solving high stakes matters for corporate clients. We specialized in crisis management scenarios, in particular dispute resolution, insolvency and high value contracting. Over the years, we have learnt that — irrespective of the size of the business — the best strategy to find the silver lining is to prevent crisis from happening. Now we use technology to help clients of all shapes and sizes to better manage risks throughout their business journey.
