  1. ”Recently, some of the board members and other people working on managing positions in our company were wrongly accused of creating an organized group, in order to forge documents regarding the typology of waste extracted from one of the oil excavations the company works on. Thanks to the dedicated work of the Băiculescu și Asociații team, the initially imposed stringent preventive measures have been replaced with the judicial control and subsequently entirely revoked.

The most significant victory yet was the admission of the appeal filed against the measures taken in the preliminary chamber stage, leading to a retrial of the case, reassuring us of the exceptional work of the legal team.

What pleasantly surprised us was the time dedicated to our case, the meetings held before each court session, and the consistent communication by the firm.” D.T.

  1. ”After a lengthy 5-year legal process, the acquittal verdict in my case, achieved through the sustained efforts of the legal team at Băiculescu și Asociații, was refreshing, and confirmed my innocence.

I must admit that the pressure of the process and the thought of being convicted were intimidating, but being honestly informed about my chances, as well as the case’s progress, and the fact that Mr. Băiculescu discussed and confirmed every document with me before presenting it to the court, reassured me that I was in good hands, which was later proven by the solution.” Z.P.

  1. ”Vasile and his team assisted us in a case where our company suffered damages as a result of the commission of embezzlement and fraudulent bankruptcy by a firm we collaborated with.

Our relationship with the law firm precedes these incidents, making it a straightforward choice to engage the same law firm to represent us in the criminal aspect. Despite the complexity and challenges of the case, the team’s efforts have aided us in partially recovering the damages incurred.” L.A.

Work highlights

1. Obtaining an acquittal solution pronounced by the Târgu-Mureș Court in 2022 and confirmed by the Appellate Court in 2023, for one of our clients that has been wrongfully accused of tax evasion.

2. Securing a recent dismissal resolution for a client falsely accused of tax evasion. Our team demonstrated, during the investigative phase, the lack of evidence implicating the suspect in the alleged crime.

3. Obtaining an important resolution to remand a case to the prosecutor’s office, following the impossibility of determining the object and limits of the trial, considering the numerous irregularities identified in the documentation prepared by the law enforcement agencies. This solution has been obtained for the representative of one of the largest supermarket chain in Romania.

4. The retrial of a case due to our persistent efforts spanning three years, ultimately resulting in the removal of incorrectly imposed preventive measures on clients falsely accused of organizing a criminal group.

1. “Băiculescu și Asociații was the first law firm to successfully assist us in the process of overturning unlawfully imposed administrative sanctions. Beyond the material damage caused, the significantly negative impact of these sanctions was the tarnishing of our company’s reputation, which had a big impact on our financial investment services.

The team consisting of Vasile Băiculescu, Antonia Prisacaru, Claudia Stoica, and Victoria Eremeev worked swiftly, considering the limited time available, and delivered results that exceeded expectations, given the extensive volume of documents and information they had to handle.” M.I.

2. “Working with Băiculescu și Asociații has been indispensable in navigating the intricacies of the Capital Markets.

3. ”The team at Băiculescu și Asociații recently supported us in a public procurement matter by offering us guidance on how to lawfully continue a project secured by us through bidding but heavily delayed due to a subcontractor’s negligence.

The representatives of the firm maintained constant communication with us, thoroughly examined all the provided documents, despite their numerousness, visited our company’s headquarters for weekly meetings, and handled the case with professionalism and responsibility.

This serves as an additional confirmation of the reasons why we collaborate with them on numerous projects and choose them for any new matter.” D.F.

4. “We have a longstanding ongoing collaboration with Băiculescu și Asociații, during which they have assisted us in a variety of cases involving different complexities. These range from disputes related to leased properties to conflicts over alienated lands or defenses against unfounded claims made by certain companies.

The team at Băiculescu has been our trusted legal partners, and we know we can turn to them for any matter. We appreciate their uninterrupted availability, the time they dedicate to us, and the meticulous approach they apply to every project, regardless of its difficulty or importance.” L.A.

Work highlights

3. Our law firm recently supported the efforts of a shareholder in a company where the state holds a majority stake. The goal was to renegotiate the terms of lease contracts signed with a medical clinic for a nominal fee, contracts that resulted in substantial damages persisting from 2012 to 2023. Through our initiatives, the company’s losses were mitigated, and the excessively burdensome contracts were renegotiated to ensure fair conditions.

Vasile Baiculescu, Managing Partner

Vasile Baiculescu, managing partner of Baiculescu & Associates, shows the methods through which the firm has adapted to the challenges in the legal sphere in Romania, thereby consolidating its position in specialized areas such as economic crimes and dispute resolution.


1) What do you see as the main points that differentiate [law firm name] from your competitors?

Our team, at Baiculescu & Associates, possesses extensive expertise in managing cases in the field of white collar crimes and dispute resolutions. We adopt a personalized approach for each case, allocating the necessary time and resources to deeply understand the details of the litigation. This approach allows us to offer legal solutions that are perfectly aligned with the specific needs and requirements of each individual client.

We strongly believe that providing the best legal solutions can only be achieved by understanding the business type of each client, ensuring that the legal solutions delivered are customized for each client.

We have chosen to provide legal services to a limited number of clients, which enables us to maintain a high standard of quality and attention. As a result, each client benefits from the highest level of expertise and dedication from our team.


2) Which practices do you see growing in the next 12 months? What are the drivers behind that?

For the next 12 months, in addition to our current activities where we also anticipate considerable evolution, we foresee a significant growth in two major areas: Dispute Resolutions and Anti Money Laundering. This growth is driven by multiple factors.

In the field of commercial litigation, we observe an increase due to the complexity of business transactions and interactions in the globalized economy. Commercial disputes are becoming more frequent and require specialized legal expertise for their efficient resolution.

On the other hand, combating money laundering is an area that is gaining increasing importance, and we anticipate a growth in the demand for legal services in preventive consultation, legal auditing, and compliance with legal provisions, representing clients in potential investigations and educating individuals involved or exposed to potential risks of violating legal provisions regarding AML policies adopted at the European Union level and implemented by the Romanian state.


3) What’s the main change you’ve made in the firm that will benefit clients?

At Baiculescu & Associates, we believe that excellence in legal services begins with the continuous development of our lawyers. This is why we have implemented a program for personal and professional development. Each day starts with a dedicated 30-minute session (8:30-9:00 AM) for study and professional enrichment.

This approach ensures that our team is always up-to-date with the latest legal developments and trends, allowing us to provide our clients with innovative and well-informed legal services.

Furthermore, we have adopted a full-time work program of 6 hours per day. We believe that this framework significantly streamlines the time for creativity and recovery of our lawyers, leading to increased productivity and superior work quality. This work structure allows us to focus intensely on each case, ensuring our clients meticulous attention and personalized services.

Another key aspect of our strategy is working with a limited number of clients. This policy allows us to provide each client with a high level of expertise and dedication, ensuring that all their legal needs are met with the utmost attention and professionalism.

Moreover, the growth of our client portfolio is directly proportional to the expansion of our team, thus ensuring that we maintain an optimal ratio between the number of lawyers and the volume of work.

These initiatives reflect our deep commitment to innovation and excellence in legal services.

At Baiculescu & Associates, we not only aim to meet the current standards of the industry but also to exceed them, setting new benchmarks for quality and efficiency in legal practice.


4) Is technology changing the way you interact with your clients, and the services you can provide them?

Technology has a significant impact in the field of business law. Online communication platforms have allowed us to maintain constant contact with clients, regardless of their geographical location, thus facilitating rapid and efficient consultations.

Additionally, the use of technology for virtual meetings saves precious time for clients and enhances the efficiency of the consultation process. We have even noticed a recent openness from the judicial authorities in Romania to conduct hearings through communication platforms, which substantially contributes to the conduct of our activities.

The integration of advanced software solutions in the management of cases and documents has significantly increased internal efficiency. This allows us to approach cases in a more structured and organized manner, thereby enhancing the quality of the services offered.


5) Can you give us a practical example of how you have helped a client to add value to their business?

A concrete example of how Baiculescu & Associates added value to a client’s business is linked to our expertise in the field of economic crimes. We recently worked with a very large company in Romania, listed on the stock market, which was facing serious financial accusations that could have severely affected its reputation and financial stability.

Our team thoroughly analyzed the case, identifying key aspects and vulnerabilities in the accusations. We worked closely with the client to build a solid defense strategy, focusing on minimizing the potential negative impact on the business. This included legal representation in court, consultancy on managing the impact, and strategic communication to protect the company’s image.

The outcome was not only favorable from a legal standpoint but also contributed to strengthening the client’s compliance and corporate governance practices.


6) Are clients looking for stability and strategic direction from their law firms – where do you see the firm in three years’ time?

Looking towards the next three years, our vision is to consolidate our expertise in key areas such as economic crimes and dispute resolution, while at the same time expanding our practices to cover new areas that respond to changes in the business and legal environment.

This will involve a continuous investment in the professional development of our team, ensuring that we are equipped to tackle the complex challenges of our clients.

We aim to be recognized for our innovative approach and for our ability to make a significant contribution to the success and evolution of our clients’ businesses.

Baiculescu & Associates will continue to adapt to market dynamics, remaining a trusted, proactive, and forward-looking ally for all our partners.
