Wolf Theiss

ROMANIA

Romania is entering an exciting new era of prosperity, fuelled by initiatives and investments in sectors as diverse as energy, infrastructure, agriculture and IT. Successful efforts to root out corruption in both the public and private sectors and a renewed commitment to the rule of law are giving this new business ecosystem room to flourish, resulting in some of the most significant growth in the EU over recent years.

Our lawyers actively began working in Romania in the wake of the political changes in 1989. This work resulted in the opening of Wolf Theiss Bucharest in 2005, a full-service office poised to meet the needs of our clients in this emerging market.

Now with more than 25 lawyers, the team at Wolf Theiss Bucharest is one of the firm’s largest, and continues to expand. If you are an investor, we have the experience to help your business take advantage of the many opportunities opening up in the Romanian market. Complex domestic and cross-border matters are routine for us, particularly in the heavy industry, construction, automotive, pharmaceutical, energy and infrastructure sectors.
