Cristina is a long-standing member of our Firm who has proved her dedication and devotion to the strategy and principles which drive SAA and has helped strengthen and grow it to its current leading position in the market. A Corporate lawyer by background, Cristina has become specialized in Tech M&A and will continue to have a leading role in the dedicated Group for this specialism within the larger M&A Department. Her work on sophisticated projects has gained her clients recognition – described as a lawyer possessing ”tremendous work ethic and knowledge” (Legal 500, 2018 Edition).

Working with market leaders producing some of the most cutting-edge technology in the world, the range of her client base includes multinational tech companies, rapidly expanding international companies, investment funds, start-ups and their founders and tech services users.
Although he joined the firm only this year, Octav has performed outstandingly and delivered exceptional, client-oriented work in the 6 months he has been with our Firm. His energy, determination and friendly approach combined with his experience, has made us certain that he truly fits the profile of a Partner in SAA.
Throughout his career Octav has been involved in many complex transactions, representing a range of parties and has significant experience in share deals, asset deals, corporate reorganisations and joint ventures. With a particular focus on healthcare and energy, he has successfully represented a wide array of corporations, investment banks, private equity firms and entrepreneurs on multiple aspects of their projects.
Commenting on the promotions, Managing Partner Silviu Stratulat said:
”I am extremely pleased to see both Cristina and Octav becoming Partners. Cristina has shown an outstanding commitment to the growth of the firm and to providing the best service to our clients and I am excited to have seen her professional development since she first joined our firm to now being a Partner.
Octav has proved himself as a mature lawyer and team leader in the little time he spent with us. He has always been supportive in getting the work done regardless of tight deadlines or workload.
Both of them are exceptionally talented lawyers and I know they will contribute greatly to the continued success of our story."
This round of promotions reflects Stratulat Albulescu’s ongoing commitment to developing and promoting those lawyers who have achieved the highest levels of professional accomplishment and who are committed to advancing and protecting the interests of clients and the values of the firm.
