“Cluj county has a mature and vibrant business environment, whose needs for specialized professional services to support its development are increasingly numerous and sophisticated," said Alexandru Reff, founder of Reff & Associates and Country Managing Partner of Deloitte Romania and Moldova. "We have had the privilege to assist many of the local leading businesses in various landmark projects and transactions and the opening of our regional office will bring us even closer to them and to other local businesses which may benefit from a full-scope law firm working closely with financial, tax, risk, strategy and technology advisors.”
