The firm

Maravela & Asociatii was founded in 2013 by leading lawyers as a full-service Romanian firm and has quickly grown to an impressive portfolio of both landmark work and major clients, including major international corporations, public authorities and sound international organisations.

In 2014, the firm began acting as leading counsel in cross-border projects, extended its practice to tax advisory and insolvency and restructuring services and has developed a specialised multidisciplinary team to swiftly handle the growing number of white-collar crime cases.

In 2015, the firm became the exclusive Romanian member of the International Business Law Consortium, a global alliance of independent business law firms which was founded in 1996 by the Center for International Legal Studies (a reputed law research, training, and teaching institute, founded in Austria in 1976) and was repeatedly top ranked by Chambers & Partners.

By 2016 Maravela & Asociatii had been acknowledged as a leading law firm and its founding partners had been noted as leading lawyers by many significant international legal directories and publications, including Best Lawyers International, Chambers & Partners, IFLR 1000, The Legal 500, The Lawyer, and others.

In 2017 Maravela & Asociatii was designated Law Firm of the Year: Romania during The Lawyer European Awards in London and was awarded by the leading Romanian business and financial newspaper for major M&A transactions completed.

In 2018 Maravela & Asociații was Highly regarded for European Law firm of the year and winner of the Law firm of the year Eastern Europe and the Balkans Award during The Lawyer European Awards in London, whilst several of the firm's major cross border M&A transactions were noted by various business publications.

Maravela & Asociatii owes its rapid development to several key features, such as flexible and user-friendly services of the firm coupled with an outstanding quality of service (as openly acknowledged by clients), its multidisciplinary approach and international reach, which enables it to handle the most complex projects, be they local or international.
