EPA was set up in 2018, after the merger of the specialised law boutique offices of two highly reputed “new wave” Business Criminal Law attorneys, Ms. Simona Pirtea and Mr. Madalin Enache, both with extensive experience mainly in White-Collar Criminality cases but also in Business Crime matters of relevant importance, acquired during the many years of coordinating the Criminal Law departments in two of the top law firms in Bucharest.

The firm’s focal area of activity is Criminal Law - White-Collar & Business Crime, in its two main components: criminal investigation and litigation, as well as business crime consultancy and counselling (business ethics & integrity).

And our efforts in the field of Criminal Law have been acknowledged by some of the most prestigious publications, starting with the top tier ranking in The Legal500 and continuing with collaborations with the more specialised publishers such as ICLG (Business Crime or Anti-Money Laundering 2018 and 2019 editions).

CRIMINAL LAW - key area of practice

Over the past 14 years we have developed unparalleled practical skills in the field of White Collar & Business Crime, forged in the midst of some of the fiercest and most scrutinized top-level court battles and prosecutorial inquiries. Considering our long-standing experience and proficiency in serving international clients, EPA is mainly working for foreign corporate clients, as well as for their executives and officers, but is also acting on behalf of local companies, business men, public figures, politicians or officials, fighting criminal law battles from all procedural stances.

Be it corruption crimes or money laundering, economic criminality or abuse of office, embezzlement of EU funds or cybercrimes, copyright or environmental criminal breaches, we have across-the-board experience and knowledge, be it litigation or consultancy projects.

CRIMINAL LAW - key activities

Investigation and litigation is undoubtedly our strongest and best-known segment of the Criminal Law practice, where our reputation is best proven by actions and results. The main services and activities are: preliminary analysis, strategic planning, drafting all supporting documents and full-service representation.
