On the occasion of the first anniversary of its founding, leaders of the global law firm Dentons say its client-centered focus, strategic growth and polycentric approach have made the firm’s first year a success. Dentons was launched on March 31, 2013, through the combination of three very strong firms, Salans, Fraser Milner Casgrain (FMC) and SNR Denton.
Locally, the Dentons brand has rapidly integrated within the Romanian legal market landscape. The firm has been involved in groundbreaking projects throughout this year of activity, such as the largest transaction in 2013, Romgaz listing. Dentons has assisted the Romanian state (through the Energy Department) with respect to the largest public offer in Romania, further to which Romgaz was listed on the Bucharest Stock Exchange (company’s shares being admitted to trading), and its Global Depository Receipts were admitted to trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange.
Joe Andrew, Global Chair stated: “The legal world has been undergoing tumultuous changes since the economic crisis in 2008. Dentons was formed as a response to these dynamics and the success we have achieved for our clients in the past year demonstrates we are on the right path.”
“The construction of the new brand Dentons on an extremely competitive market has required sustained team efforts, but it has also brought plenty of reward. We now have access to the resources and know-how of a very strong network and subsequently to clients we could have not won before the combination.”, says Anda Todor, Managing Partner of Dentons Bucharest.
