Silviu Stratulat, Managing Partner and Head of Corporate/M&A commented: "We are delighted to have Adrian and Vlad join our Corporate and M&A Department which is the central pillar of our firm. Both have the experience required to help our team deliver its services to clients faster and better but are young enough to absorb our firm’s strategy and innovative approach to matters such as managing client relations and relationship building.”
Silviu Stratulat added that the firm will continue to invest in its Corporate/M&A practice area, one of the two engines of the firm. The arrival of Vlad Sandulescu and Adrian Hlistei-Muresan to the Stratulat Albulescu team follows the promotions of Cristina Man and Octav Stan to Partners in January 2021 and represents a strengthening for the Corporate and M&A practice, key in the Firm’s strategy.
