Bucharest, 1st of February 2016 – MUŞAT & ASOCIAŢII has appointed two new partners to the leading structure of the Law Firm. Angela Mare and Paul Buta have a wealth of experience in the legal profession and are recognized leaders in their practice areas.

Angela Mare is a long-standing member of the Muşat & Asociaţii legal team and has 16 years’ experience in the relevant field.

She is unanimously praised by the Law Firm clients for her prompt and effective manner of solving such cases.
Paul Buta has a Ph D in Law Degree and is an assistant professor with the “”Nicolae Titulescu” Law School. He has over ten years’ experience in the legal field, specializing in civil and commercial disputes, but also in competition law and intellectual property. He acted on very important cases and legally assisted a significant portfolio of international clients (mainly foreign investors and multinationals), on competition and intellectual property matters and on regulatory issues in the pharmaceutical and medical fields. Moreover, Paul Buta is highly appreciated for his expertise in tax disputes and international arbitration, and in particular for his capacity to analyze and provide innovative solutions for the successful management of litigation case files.
