Practice Areas

Banking & Finance

From our work on some of the largest real estate financings in Romanian history to helping start-up companies with their initial financial needs, our Banking and Finance team advises on all aspects of a transaction.

Specializing in complex financial matters, we have advised some of the region’s largest banks, financial institutions and borrowers, on structured syndicated loan agreements, inter-company financings, factorings, bond deals, project financings and capital market operations. We have also represented clients in front of the National Bank of Romania, the National Securities Commission, the Bucharest Stock Exchange and RASDAQ. In addition, we are a regional leader in developing and implementing new and inventive financial products. For instance, we advised on the structuring and implementation of the first cash-pulling product in Romanian history.

Representing developers, owners, sellers, purchasers, creditors, and contractors in all areas relating to secured and project financing, our interdisciplinary team of lawyers includes legal experts in real estate, bankruptcy, litigation, and environmental matters.

In this complex and developing market, we specialize in providing the legal advice necessary to help our clients stay in full compliance with both local and EU rules and regulations. Our strong regulatory and compliance practice assists banks and other financial institutions on their daily operations. In the compliance and regulatory area, we have worked for many market leading banks and financial institutions as well as for foreign governments. For example, one of our projects was the redrafting the leasing laws of Moldova.

We have a deep and sophisticated understanding of the views, commercial objectives and expectations of all-sides of a financial transaction, allowing us to develop unique and tailored strategies and structures for each client and each deal. Practical, hands-on and business-oriented, we help clients achieve their goals.
