Former Constitutional Court judge and National Anti-Corruption Department Chief Prosecutor Daniel Morar has joined forces with the Albu Legal white-collar and corporate crime law firm, joining as a Senior Partner to form Albu Morar.
Albu Legal first opened its doors in Bucharest almost three years ago when Gabriel Albu, former Founding and Managing Partner at Budusan, Albu & Asociatii, took a team to launch his own boutique law firm (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on January 20, 2020).
"The partnership offer came from Albu Legal," Morar commented. "My intention to practice law in the private sector after the end of my [Constitutional Court] term was a matter of public record – I had previously said that, once I had completed my mandate at the Constitutional Court, my public career would end and I would go into private practice. So I chose to practice as a lawyer, something that marks several premiers for me."
"Daniel Morar brings a top-level know-how in white-collar crime and in areas like constitutional law and human rights, and will get involved in our partnership at the very topmost senior level," Albu Legal Founder Gabriel Albu added. "Considering his extensive experience, we are convinced he will play an important role as lead attorney in corporate criminal cases. Separately, and as a mostly new practice area of our partnership, we are considering going into providing legal advice and opinions in areas like constitutional law, human rights, criminal law, and criminal procedure law."
