Clifford Chance Badea, the local office of global law firm Clifford Chance, has advised in most of the representative transactions successfully closed in Romania this year, adding to an already impressive portfolio equity deals worth around EUR 5 billion, and debt transactions of approximately EUR 12 billion.
Landmark deals include the historical listing of Hidroelectrica, the sale of Enel Romania, the Eurobonds programs implemented by CEC Bank, Banca Transilvania and Unicredit Bank, and the OMV Petrom GDRs delisting from the London Stock Exchange. Throughout the year, the Firm has further built on its extensive expertise in strategic industries, with a special focus on Banking & Finance and Energy (renewable and conventional alike).
Managing Partner Daniel Badea considers that, "Romania is still an attractive and dynamic business environment, amid an increasingly unpredictable and volatile global context, both at geopolitical and macroeconomic levels. The quality and experience of our Bucharest team were essential in the successful completion of some very complex projects in 2023. We take pride in having built a very talented team of lawyers capable of working on both local and global projects at international standards. My colleagues in Bucharest successfully coordinate multi-jurisdictional teams within the firm, in complex and challenging cross-border transactions, making a difference in key industries for the strategic and sustainable development of the region."
