“We are honored to receive these awards. They bring a local perspective – an extremely well documented one, I believe – to the appraisals of the international specialized publications. We appreciate the organizers’ initiative to build an objective analysis of the skills, knowledge and experience of law firms in Romania. The impressive number of domains in which we were awarded is a natural consequence of the involvement of MUSAT & ASOCIATII, one of the few genuinely “full service” law firms in Romania, in numerous high-profile projects spread across all majors areas of legal expertise. It stands out as another recognition of the impeccable standards we have always imposed in the quality of our legal advice and we are glad that our efforts are acknowledged also by Romanian publications, not only by the long-established international guides with tradition in the assessment of attorneys’ expertise”, Cătălin Băiculescu, Co-Managing Partner of Muşat & Asociaţii, stated on this occasion.
MUŞAT & ASOCIAŢII also holds a leading position from a financial standpoint, according to the ranking included in the third edition of “Top Lawyers”: the law firm achieved over EUR 18.5 million in turnover and a profit of EUR 10 million, a 30% increase on year-to-year basis.
Additionally, the firm was granted a special award for excellence in IT, Communications & Media. “This distinction equally honors us, as it recognizes our merits in an extremely specialized field: it is not easy for any law firm to gain the trust of the most reputable names in the international IT&C, but we take pride in our client portfolio which simultaneously includes Google, Yahoo! Amazon Technologies, Oracle, Orange, British Telecom or AT&T”, says Catalin Baiculescu.
