On March 27th 2013, Legal 500 (www.legal500.com), one of the most prestigious legal directories, published the rankings for the best law firms from the Europe, Middle East and Africa regions, including from Romania (Legal 500 EMEA 2013).
Strătulă Mocanu & Asociații (SM&A) is, in 2013 as well, recognized and recommended by the Legal 500 EMEA, regarding its Dispute Resolution practice (for the seventh year consecutively), as well as with respect to firm’s IT, telecoms and media practice area (for the fourth year consecutively).
In the Dispute Resolution area our team is considered ‘outstanding’ as it has continued to perform excellent and efficient legal representation in various litigation and arbitration cases, acting for major international companies that are locally active, such as British American Tobacco and UPC. Also, in the IT, telecoms and media field SM&A is recognised for its film and TV legal practice, as well as for advising UPC Romania, subsidiary of one of the most important cable companies in the world.
Sources recommend Sorin Strătulă and Cosmin Mocanu as ‘excellent litigators – there is no case that these gentlemen could not handle’ (in regards to their dispute resolution practice) and also as very attentive to each customer’s specific needs, giving ‘great technical advice’ (in reference to their IT, telecoms and media practice).
Considering that the inclusion of a firm into these rankings takes places exclusively based on client feed-back, independent and impartial research on the legal market in Romania performed by this prestigious legal directory, as well on the peer opinion, the positioning of SM&A amongst the best law firms from Romania for these legal areas represents a confirmation of the high degree of satisfaction of SM&A’s clients regarding the legal services they receive, as well as a recognition of permanent involvement and constant attention given by SM&A’s lawyers to the quality of the legal services the firm offers to its clients.
