In March 2023, the law offices of Andra-Roxana Trandafir and Irina-Ioana Kuglay have joined forces to form a new law firm in Romania: Kuglay & Trandafir – Attorneys at law.
According to a Kuglay & Trandafir press statement, the firm focuses primarily on criminal law, especially on those cases that involve the “criminal liability of legal entities, medical malpractice, or insurance measures.”
Before joining forces with Kuglay, Trandafir had spent over two years in solo practice. Before that, she spent almost four years as a Legal Counsel with BRD – Groupe Societe Generale and almost 11 years with Stoica & Asociatii. According to the firm, “Trandafir specializes in criminal law and has mainly handled cases related to economic crimes and in which issues of freezing orders and criminal liability of the legal entities were raised.”
Kuglay has, prior to setting up Kuglay & Trandafir, spent over twenty years working as a prosecutor, including stints with the Ministry of Justice working on the implementation of the Criminal Procedure Code and being an Advisor to the Prosecutor General. She's also “a trainer at the National Institute of Magistracy for the disciplines of Criminal Procedure Law and Criminal Law,” according to the firm.
The two Partners are joined by Cristina Cucoanis, a Junior Lawyer.
