Former Mares Danilescu Mares Partner, Lucian Danilescu, has joined forces with Andreea-Oana Hulub to launch Danilescu Hulub & Partners - a new boutique focusing on transportation. 

As CEE Legal Matters reported on October 1, 2019, Lucian Danilescu left the Mares Danilescu Mares firm, which has, as a result, changed its name to Mares & Mares. Prior to his eight years with Mares Danilescu Mares, of which he was a Founding Partner, he spent over 12 years with Zamfirescu Racoti Predoiu, where he was a Partner by the time he left in 2011. Danilescu will take on the role of Managing Partner at the new firm. 

Hulub joins the new firm as a Founding Partner. Previously, she worked for Popovici Nitu Stoica & Asociatii, where she started her legal career in 2008. In March 2012 she was promoted to Senior Associate and became a Managing Associate in March 2016.

Danilescu explained to CEE Legal Matters the focus of the firm: “The need for development of Romania’s transportation infrastructure is a common reasoning in the last decades. It is commonplace to emphasize the need for motorways. However, a much larger portion of the total freight can, and would, be better to go on water. Romania benefits from the longest part of the River Danube in Europe, and the Danube represents, in itself, the 7th Pan-European transport corridor. Through the Dobrogea Canal, the Port of Constanta is also a Danube river port. Last year the Port of Constanta has attracted a total traffic of more than 66 million tons. It is estimated that the Port may attract more than 100 million tons of traffic. Finalizing some limited projected investments this traffic may double. The potential of water transportation in Romania is huge. The links with Central Asia through the ports in Georgia and Azerbaijan may also boost both traffic and energy corridors. The looming global economic crisis will also reassess large infrastructure projects. All of this made us assess that the transport and infrastructure as a whole will prove a fertile environment both in terms of investments and in terms of consultancy needs.”

Hulub added: “For me, it started with my passion for aviation (my mother was a pilot and I practice aviation sports as well) and for transportation in general. Transportation as well as logistics are somewhat viewed as secondary by the legal services market and are not systematically addressed by any of the major players. I wanted to make a difference by bringing the expertise I gained working for 12 years in these sectors: transportation, logistics, and generally supply chain.”
