Former Tuca, Zbarcea si Asociatii Lawyers Mihai Dudoiu and Sergiu Negreanu have opened a new boutique law firm: Dudoiu, Negreanu & Associates – operating under the brand Legal.Ground.

Before the new venture, Dudoiu spent almost 15 years with Tuca, Zbarcea si Asociatii where he coordinated the banking practice and was a Partner.

Negreanu spent almost ten years with Tuca, Zbarcea si Asociatii, joining first as an Associate in 2014, before becoming a Senior Associate in 2019, and a Managing Associate in 2022.

Legal.Ground reports that its main focus is "financing, restructuring, and corporate and M&A projects. The firm will also be able to assist with banking regulations on payments and non-bank financial institutions. Tax and financial practices are also envisaged in the near future."

"After extensive experience in assisting the main banking and corporate players active in Romania, as well as in the region, we have identified a trend in customer needs," Dudoiu said. "As clients become more sophisticated, their needs for legal advice evolve, and lawyers need to invest the time necessary to understand these needs. Our goal is to function as an integral part of the client's team and focus on quality rather than volume. A boutique structure that includes lawyers who specialize in certain well-defined areas of practice is one that can achieve this outcome."

“We will operate in a modern structure, one flexible and cost-effective enough to be able to adjust our services and offers to customer needs," Negreanu added. "We intend to grow organically by working with lawyers who share our values. As the team grows, the firm aims to focus its resources on legal assistance for start-ups. Although the need for legal services of these companies is quite complex, they rarely have access to lawyers with extensive experience in a particular field. We try to bridge such needs and work with start-ups on their way to development and growth."
