About us

Listed in Legal 500 as the leading business crime law firm on the Romanian legal market, the core services of BUDUȘAN & ASOCIAȚII consist in the integrated management of business crime cases, whether from a defensive standpoint, or by serving the needs of crime victims when seeking compensation from offenders or other responsible parties, as well as from pre-emptive perspective, intended to identify and mitigate criminal law risks that may arise in the course of business activities.

Following a fruitful collaboration between its founding partners, starting 2005, and in context of the ongoing organization and staffing of the elite prosecution divisions within the Prosecution Office of the High Court of Cassation and Justice (PICCJ), notably The National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) and Directorate for Investigation of Infringements of Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT), BUDUȘAN & ASOCIAȚII was established in 2008, as a private practice intended to mirror the increasingly organized, staffed and sophisticated investigative tools of the prosecution.

Since its set-up, in 2008, BUDUȘAN & ASOCIAȚII has provided legal services in a vast majority of the local high-profile business crime and corruption cases. Our professional activity is defined by a combined legal and procedural approach to cases, integrating various branches of law (in consideration of the regulatory framework of the industry targeted by the investigation), as well as fields of expertise (through a well-established collaboration with reputed experts and specialists providing a skilled perspective on technical issues of the legal matter).

Our legal team focuses on the needs of our clients, by seeking to correctly identify the stakes and the stakeholders, and to mitigate risks arising out of a criminal investigation/trial or from any circumstances implying criminal law risks.

The representation and assistance granted to our clients is based on a coherent procedural strategy, so as to maximize the chances of a favourable outcome of judicial procedures, but also on good faith cooperation with our clients in building their case.
