Schoenherr și Asociații SCA is bringing in a new head of tax. As of 24 February 2021, Adriana Stoian, a tax advisor with over 20 years of professional experience in the local market, will be running the firm's tax advisory practice in Romania.
Schoenherr launched its tax advisory practice in 2013, with the aim of providing integrated legal and tax services to its clients. Tax advisory soon became one of the firm's key areas of expertise in Romania, generating demand both as part of multi-disciplinary services, and as a stand-alone practice.
"Adriana joins us at a time when Schoenherr's tax advisory practice has reached its maturity. We are confident that her remarkable experience will allow us to maintain the high level of service provided to our clients in this area. Also, we trust that, together with Adriana, we will be able to explore new directions for growth in our specialised practice." – said Sebastian Guțiu, managing partner Schoenherr și Asociații SCA.
Adriana Stoian is a recognised expert in the Romanian tax advisory market. She has over 20 years of experience in this area, gained while working in a Big4 company, in local tax advisory firms (either independent or affiliated to law firms), as well as in a major oil & gas company.
"There is still a lot of potential in the market for complete solutions which integrate legal and tax services. I am glad to take over this role, that will allow me to tap into this potential together with the Schoenherr team, by combining the access to international resources and standards with the firm's strong foothold in the local market." – said Adriana Stoian, the new head of tax at Schoenherr și Asociații SCA.
Adriana Stoian takes over the leading role of Schoenherr's tax practice in Romania from Theodor Artenie, who has announced his decision to embark on a similar position with another firm. "Theodor has been an important member of our team and we are grateful for his role in the development of the firm's tax advisory practice. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours." – added Sebastian Guțiu.
Schoenherr is a regional law firm active in Central Eastern Europe and South-Eastern Europe, where it operates 15 offices. The firm entered the Romanian market 25 years ago and provides full service legal advice, covering the main areas relevant for local and multinational companies. The firm's tax advisory practice is ranked by the main international legal and tax directories that cover this sector of the Romanian market (Chambers and Partners, Legal500, World Tax).
