Following a nomination process and assessment from The Legal 500’s researchers, part of the region’s most instrumental corporate counsels have been acknowledged and included on the prestigious list. The nominators have recognized the GC’s role in changing or forming opinions within their company or industry, developing brilliant technical solutions to complex issues, creating innovative structures to ensure that the in-house function is driving the business forward or providing a business working model that other corporate counsel should follow.

“We are happy to see that The Legal 500 is dedicating this edition to the CEE region and we warmly congratulate all acknowledged GCs! Today’s GCs are business enablers and a key factor for excellent cooperation between corporations and external counsels. They translate legal views into practical business-oriented guidance that enables success. They oversee budgets, mediate between law and business and handle challenging external relationships in an ever-changing law firm landscape. We hereby reiterate our sincere congratulations to each and every nominated individual and extend our deepest gratitude and appreciation to all GCs we have worked with throughout our careers.” Gelu Maravela and Alina Popescu, Managing Partners of Maravela|Asociații
