Silviu Stratulat

Managing Partner

Silviu Stratulat plays many roles within our firm, as he has since its founding. Based on his extensive skills and experience in Real Estate, Corporate Law, Mergers and Acquisitions, Silviu founded our firm in March 2011. From the beginning, besides serving our clients, he has also served as Managing Partner of the company, overseeing his impressive growth into a major player in Romania's legal scene with over 30 lawyers now on his roster. Silviu's successful career in these two demanding roles demonstrates the energy and intelligence that he brings to his clients and colleagues.

His success with business clients comes from his entrepreneurial aptitude and experience, which provides insights into the challenges faced by clients. Silviu entered the areas of Real Estate and Corporate M & A early in his career, which then allowed him to gain extensive experience in all matters associated with these fields. The record of successful transactions that Silviu has seen to a conclusion is a long one (listed below.)

Another source of Silviu's success in representing local and international businesses comes from his education. His undergraduate degree in economics and his law degrees (LL.B. and LL.M - Corporate Law) add to the advantage of educational opportunities for schooling and training in the US, UK and the Netherlands. His time abroad helped him gain fluency in English, Spanish and Italian. One of Silviu's defining characteristics is his ability to connect with others. Silviu's speech, whether in his native Romanian, his almost flawless English, or his own Italian, conveys to anyone listening to his mastery of details and his vision forward. Silviu also takes his willingness to travel abroad by doing so on behalf of his clients, his firm, and Romania as a business venue.
