Partners Francisc and Carmen Peli and several colleagues have split from Romania's PeliFilip law firm to create the Peli firm, with their former colleagues rebranding and operating as Filip and Company going forward.

Francisc Peli, who was Managing Partner at PeliFilip from 2008-2015, will assume the role of Managing Partner at Peli. In addition, according to the press release, "the Peli team will include Oana Badarau, Partner and Head of Real Estate — the same role held within PeliFilip, and Mihnea Galgoțiu-Sararu, Partner and Head of Dispute Resolution, who was previously involved in coordinating PeliFilip’s litigation practice."

"We are grateful that Peli is regarded as a well-established name in business law," said Francisc Peli. "We had exceptional opportunities for which we worked together with exceptional people. We were inspired to make the right decisions at the right time and this is one of them.” 

“The business environment is radically changing, and our team pursues to create first-class legal solutions adapted to the new reality," added Carmen Peli. "We thank all our partners and clients who credited us with their trust over the years — we will continue to give our unwavering commitment." 

In a statement sent to CEE Legal Matters, Filip and Company Managing Partner Cristina Filip said of the change that "certainly we are living the event of the year in the local legal industry," but insisted that the departure of the Pelis-led team "has no impact on the other partners or the existence of the firm."
