The Bucharest office of global law firm Clifford Chance strengthens its middle management with two promotions at Senior Associate level - Georgiana Evi, lawyer specialized in Banking & Finance and Capital Markets, and Stefan Dinu, Litigation & Arbitration lawyer.
"Today we acknowledge the important contribution that our colleagues have in their practices, amid a period of intense work on complex and landmark projects for the Romanian market. While our Capital Markets Practice carries on the first-of-their-kind deals tradition, which we have been building since the beginning of the Capital Market in Romania, the Litigation and Arbitration team keeps up a fast growth pace within our overall business and on the local market," Daniel Badea, Managing Partner Clifford Chance Badea, said.
