First pageTestimonials


The legal directories (such as Chambers & Partners, The Legal 500 and IFLR 100) are renowned for their work identifying and ranking the leading lawyers and law firms across the globe, including in Romania. Legal rankings are based on in-depth analyses and research, conducted by experienced team of researchers but especially on clients’ feedback.

All legal directories require lists of referees, whom they usually interview. A referee is usually a client, although it can be anyone who has experience and knowledge of our firm in that practice area over the preceding 12 months. Providing referees to the legal directories allowed us to gather feedback on both our practices and lawyers.

You will find below the latest testimonials received by our firm following the analyses made by the researchers from the legal directories:
