Simona Marin has been named the Head of Denton's Banking and Finance practice in Bucharest.
According to Dentons, "Simona Marin is an English- and New York-qualified Partner with more than 15 years’ experience advising financial institutions and project sponsors on cross-border finance transactions in CEE. She acts for lenders and borrowers and has been involved in advising international banks and financial institutions on a number of ground-breaking transactions in the region in recent years."
Marin joined Dentons earlier this year after spending 15 years at CMS (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on January 24, 2020), where she made Partner in 2014.
“In the last 12 months our Banking and Finance team has advised on more banking transactions in terms of aggregate value than any other law firm in Romania," Marin said, "and I am proud to have been given the opportunity to lead such an experienced group of professionals."
Perry Zizzi, Managing Partner of Dentons Romania, stated that “the appointment of Simona to this key leadership role, combined with other recent high-profile hires in Romania, clearly positions Dentons as the leading finance practice on the Romanian and Central and Eastern European markets. This is part of our ‘Dentons Romania 2.0’ strategy to build on our existing regional prominence in key practice areas and advise clients locally, in CEE and beyond”.
Marin graduated from the George Washington University Law School in 2005.
