act legal Romania promotes two colleagues to Partner

act legal Romania kicks off the new year with good news by announcing the promotion of Andrei Croitoru and Iustina Oblu to Partner.

From the outset, act legal has nurtured legal personalities with an entrepreneurial mindset, and the promotion of Andrei and Iustina reinforces this core value.

Andrei is a Partner in the Compliance, Sensitive Investigations and White-Collar Crime practice of act legal Romania. Andrei advises and represents major domestic and international companies in sophisticated investigations involving corruption, tax evasion, fraud and work-related criminal offenses. Notably, he is the first practicing Romanian lawyer to earn the Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) credential.

Iustina is a Partner in the Real Estate and Regulatory practices, also deeply involved in environmental matters. Iustina has a notable track record in assets acquisitions and disposals, real estate project development, drafting and negotiation of lease agreements, concessions, regulatory and environmental topics. Iustina’s expertise spans various big real estate projects, including retail, office buildings, industrial and residential properties.

“Even though it was already on the table, I remember Laura (Estrade) returning from Harvard Law School Executive Education’s Leadership in Law Firms program – she was still thinking about a question one of the lecturers asked: Who’s the next person you are going to make a Partner? I was familiar with the question, as I also took the program a while ago, and couldn’t help but smile thinking that she was just given a valuable lesson on how to build an extraordinary legal team – invest in the people you believe in. Give them responsibility. Let them shine. And so, that’s what we did. Andrei and Iustina’s go-getter attitude in complex cases and their seamless management of projects are just pluses to the tremendous confidence we have in them. Congratulations, guys, you fully deserve it and we are proud of you!” – stated Ștefan Botezatu, Managing Partner.
