CLIENT: Cornel Soare, CEO
COMPANY/FIRM: Sano Vita
TESTIMONIAL: “The sale process was much more complicated than we imagined when we decided to start this and the sale of the business we built in 25 years was a very emotional moment for the shareholders. We appreciated the professionalism of the RTPR team led by Alina Stavaru for the way she guided us through the labyrinth of legal complexities, but mostly because during negotiations she shared her experience gained in other transactions of what you can and cannot obtain in an M&A deal. We successfully navigated together through this complex experience which was most likely a once in a lifetime one.”

CLIENT: Marius Ghenea, Managing Partner
COMPANY/FIRM: Catalyst Romania
TESTIMONIAL: “I have worked on many transactions with Alina and the RTPR team so far. As always before, the RTPR team of professionals had an excellent contribution in this complex deal with SmartBill, the buyer being one of the most important strategic investors in Europe, in the vertical business processes provided as SaaS (Software as a Service) technology.”

CLIENT: Marius Stefan, CEO
COMPANY/FIRM: Autonom Services

Each time we were impressed by the professionalism and involvement of those with whom we interacted. We recommend to any entrepreneur who wants to take their business to the next level, to have at least a discussion with the RTPR team”.

CLIENT: Irina Neacșu, Executive Director Corporate Finance
COMPANY/FIRM: BRD Groupe Société Générale

COMPANY/FIRM: Prime Kapital
TESTIMONIAL: “We are pleased to have had another very successful collaboration with RTPR and look forward to continuing this in the future.

We believe they stand out as one of the best M&A legal advisory firms in the country and we thank all the team who was involved in this project. I am sure we will maintain our strong cooperation with RTPR in future projects as well.”

</hr>

CLIENT: Serban Roman, Vice president
COMPANY/FIRM: Enterprise Investors
TESTIMONIAL: “We are very satisfied with our cooperation with RTPR that has been assisting us for the past 12 years in most of Enterprise Investors’ transactions in Romania. The extended M&A expertise of the firm’s lawyers, combined with their creativity and availability, convinced us to be partners throughout our investment in Macon, from acquisition to exit. We thank all those who were involved in this complex process and I am convinced we will have an equally close cooperation in the future.”
