TROPHIES: New Recognitions for Turcan Cazac from Chambers Europe


26 April 2013

London, UK - Following recognitions from the prominent Chambers Global and Legal 500 earlier in the season, the international editorial Chambers Europe similarly names Turcan Cazac the top law firm for general business in Moldova.

"This leading corporate firm remains a top choice for international financial institutions and foreign investors doing business in Moldova. It handles a number of banking and finance mandates and advised IFC, EBRD and BSTDB, as well as private equity groups, on various finance and equity projects. A key mandate was acting for Credit Suisse on the USD28 million restructuring of its secured loan facility to Bemol, a local operator of petrol stations. The firm also has expertise in corporate matters and advises international clients on M&A, restructuring and capital increases. Clients include Grawe, Philip Morris and Société Générale."

The editorial also emphasizes clients noting that the Turcan Cazac team is "extremely responsive and quick to turn things round" and praising leading lawyers Alexander Turcan and Octavian Cazac.


In addition to general business, Chambers Europe researches the dispute resolution practice in Moldova, being the only international market researcher to cover the practice in the country, and continues to position Turcan Cazac in Band 2.

"This leading corporate firm also assists international clients involved in disputes. Highlights include acting for European investors on a dispute over shares, representing an audit firm in commercial litigation, and assisting a pharmaceutical company with a trade mark infringement case. In addition, the firm handles professional liability cases, regulatory disputes and debt collection on behalf of international clients. Defending employers in litigation and assisting clients with the enforcement of foreign judgments are further aspects of the firm's work."

The editorial names Alexander Turcan a key individual in the practice, who is "appreciated by clients for his thoroughness" and who examines "every avenue."
