Lucian Danilescu, together with Andreea Hulub and a dynamic and experienced team of top ranking lawyers have founded the new law firm Danilescu Hulub & Associates – the first law firm in Romania addressing with priority and in an integrated manner transports, port and airport infrastructure and logistic services.
The firm aims to set a new professional standard, both as regards high technical rigor and especially as an integrated approach of these sectors which have been long time viewed as side services, namely transports, port and airport infrastructure and logistic services „We will provide high standard professional legal services, at the level of those provided by top ranking law firms, but adapted to these particular industries and, above all, we will put the client and the solution in the centre of our activity. And the new format will allow us to be more flexible, and more adaptable to the clients’ business.” states Andreea Hulub, founding partner.
Even if the firm’s primary focus will be transports, logistic services and port and airport infrastructure, the firm will offer all the customary areas of expertise necessary within ordinary course of business, from corporate law, mergers & acquisitions, contracts, to labour law, data protection, financing & capital markets, and furthermore to restructuring & insolvency.
„Transports are at the heart of commerce. Our firm is fully equipped with the best skills to assist clients all along the route to market, from production points all the way through the supply chain, during transport of products to distribution points, be it maritime, air, rail, road, intermodal transport, in relation to freight forwarders, hauliers, insurers and third party logistic services suppliers involved in the entire supply chain”, declares Lucian Danilescu, founding partner.
In the new format, Lucian Danilescu has undertaken the role of managing partner. Lucian is a former partner with one of the most reputable and prestigious law firms in Romania and has over 20 years of experience in big infrastructure projects, such as ports and airports, and in transports. For more than 15 years, Lucian has been representing the most important port operators at Constanta Port and he has also an important experience in corporate commercial and mergers & acquisitions, as well as energy and restructuring.
„It is not by chance that we are launching our project at this time, in the midst of crisis. The transportation sector (port, airport, rail and road) was not addressed in a coherent, systematic and integrated manner by any player in the local consultancy market. In the past 20 years, we have accumulated a unique experience in these fields, and, at this time, when transportation and the supply chain need all the support they can get our team will be a knowledgeable and trustworthy partner. We have the professional experience, but moreover the practical expertise to anticipate the needs of the clients in these sectors and to serve them to a new standard”, states Lucian Danilescu.
Andreea Hulub has an experience of 12 years in business law and is recognized for her pragmatic, solution-driven approach and is recommended by clients as an expert in her fields of competence. Andreea was a managing associate with one of the largest law firms in Romania where she coordinated the transports and logistics practice areas. Andreea has a significant experience in the M&A field having been part of the largest M&A transactions in Romania in the past 10 years in the agri-business, industrial and construction materials sectors. Andreea was also involved in the largest project-based financing transactions in the industrial and port field in the past years and has a unique expertise in ports law.
„The transition from a corporate law firm to an entrepreneurial lawyer was a natural evolution after 12 years of activity. The new formula allows me to put into practice my own vision, anchored in the current realities, wherein the client and the solution will be the central focus of our activity. I am happy that in this endeavour we have by our side a team of great people who have followed us believing in our vision. Looking ahead, I am optimistic: we have the solid foundations of serious professional careers, to which we will add a fresh perspective, more dynamism and, most importantly, a transparent and honest approach.”
The new law firm has already started its activity and structured its practice areas and teams. Danilescu Hulub & Partners has already announced that it aims to expand its team and is recruiting. It has also set the financial target for the first full financial year at a total turnover of Euro 1 million.
