Clifford Chance Badea Of Counsel Diana Crangasu and Former D&B David & Baias Partner Adrian Ster have founded 360Competition, a boutique competition law firm.
Both Ster and Crangasu specialize in competition law and state aid. The new firm's services will cover antitrust, merger control, state aid, and unfair competition.
Ster has spent the past two years as Partner in charge of Competition Law and State Aid at D&B David and Baias, which he joined in May 2019 after spending the previous three years at Wolf Theiss (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on May 8, 2019). He graduated from the Babes-Bolyai University Law School in 2005.
Crangasu will continue to supervise the competition practice at Clifford Chance Badea, overseeing its local competition team, and working with the antitrust teams of other Clifford Chance offices. She graduated from the University of Bucharest Law School in 2004.
"The opening of a specialized boutique reflects both the confidence we have in our capabilities and the maturity of the Romanian legal services market," commented Ster. "Our experience and the portfolio of clients we set out with confirm that we are taking this step not only with the best team, but also at the right time," added Crangasu.
