Many years of practice taught us that law, particularly business law, is not an end in itself, but only a tool for shaping what the client needs. Our view is that in order to be an effective business lawyer one must understand the real needs of the client and know how to use the legal tools to put those needs in the right legal shape.
Our understanding of the specificity of the business environment the client lives in and of the main features of its industry are crucial in achieving the effect sought by the client. We teamed together various backgrounds from literary to technical for attaining such understanding.
The team created by the lawyers Radu Rizoiu, Lucian Poenaru and Ioana Ochi together with Raluca Zatropa, certified translator, is now known as Rizoiu & Poenaru. We are friends. We are dealmakers.
Domestic and international clients represented by Rizoiu & Poenaru get now the legal support from a team of seven lawyers. The team is constantly increasing in both professional dimension and expertise, by granting legal assistance and representation to its clients in the major areas of business law practice.
