Filip & Company law firm assists businessman Florin Pogonaru and Tudor Georgescu, CEO of Promateris, the Romanian manufacturer of biodegradable and compostable packaging, in the sale of 24% of their shares to Pavăl Holding.
“Promateris is one of our local champions when it comes to circular economy, they are fighting climate change and they are a purely Romanian story of a group of very fine and warm-hearted people. Dedeman’s entry into the shareholding is a natural sequel to a story of exceptional growth and I am convinced it will be one of their best investments. We are glad to have been able to help and thank the customers for their trust and good collaboration – as always, it has been a great experience”, said Alexandru Bîrsan, partner at Filip & Company.
The Filip & Company team coordinated by Alexandru Bîrsan included Olga Niță (partner), Anca Bădescu (associate) and Rareș Crâșmaru (associate).
