‘Great team of lawyers who know exactly how to get deals done in a very efficient manner. Stratulat Albulescu delivered every piece of their work in good time and demonstrated excellent knowledge of the sector throughout the entire project. They also advised us on day-to-day real estate matters and constantly proved that they are a complete and professional team. They are able to see the big picture and have a commercial approach.

‘Stratulat Albulescu demonstrated a proactive approach, attention to our needs and understanding of the commercial terms.’

‘Over the past years we worked mostly with Silviu Stratulat and Corneliu Popa. Silviu heads the Real Estate department with professionalism and integrity.

‘I found Stratulat Albulescu to have one of the strongest Real Estate practices in the market. The group includes highly knowledgeable and forward thinking lawyers with a very creative approach and, most important, a very creative and positive mindset.

‘SAA helped us on many matters related to new or existing locations including negotiations of new leases and renegotiation of existing ones. Once the Covid-19 outbreak, SAA has proved essential to our strategy, approach of the problem and even good-standing. They helped us understand the various legal concepts that were applicable and those which were not applicable although highly debated in the local press. Their speed and efficiency (which sometimes entailed working weekends) allowed us to follow certain steps which later proved essential to our standing in the negotiations of leases with the landlords.’

‘The team is very professional in identifying the business needs of the client. beside the solid legal knowledge, they have a very deep understanding of the real estate market, tendencies. They are able to provide a tailor made legal advice focusing on the main business interest the client wishes to achieve.’

As such, he managed to create in the real estate practice group a team, that is able to provide fast and efficient legal advise in all sub-sectors of real estate law.

‘Corneliu Popa proved to be outstanding in identifying our needs proactively and pointed out to several issues additional to the core of our transaction that needed to be solved. When raising those issues, he immediately provided a fast and practical solution, which the real estate team quickly realised.

‘Andrei Albulescu has the deepest construction law knowledge of all Romanian lawyers I have worked with so far. Daiana Assoum is devoted to her work, fast responding and very effective.’
