Local law firm ONV LAW announced the launch of a new Corporate Crimes and Investigations practice area, following the arrival of two corporate crime trial lawyers. Mircea Teis, former head of the criminal law department at one of the top Romanian law firms and Cătălin Chituc have joined ONV LAW as Senior Managers, strengthening the firm’s position in the white-collar crimes area of expertise.
“In addition to being excellent practitioners, Mircea and Cătălin bring in-depth experience and a skillset that will widen the firm’s capabilities and strengthen our offer to clients. I welcome them to our team,” said Radu Nemeș, Managing Partner.
Excellent trial lawyer with an exceptionally strong experience in the field of corporate crimes litigation, Mircea Teis has been involved in some of the most complex and challenging cases in this area. He focuses his practice on advising and representing local and international businesses, as well as private individuals, in connection with crimes related to European funds, the capital market regime, public procurement, competition, and M&A, as well as white-collar crimes such as corruption, tax evasion, money laundering, national and European financial frauds or insurance.
“I look forward to being part of the ONV LAW team and to work closely with my new colleagues in order to deliver to our clients’ integrated services, as the prevention of the corporate criminal aspects is mandatory in any type of business. In my opinion, the new Corporate Crimes and Investigations practice brings complementary skills to the firm’s already broad range of corporate law advisory and litigations services by implementing the “one-stop shop” concept in the legal services market,” said Mircea.
Cătălin Chituc brings an impressive track record of advising and representing domestic and international companies on corporate crimes and investigations related matters. He has significant experience in white-collar criminal litigation, with a particular focus on tax evasion and money laundering cases, and has advised private individuals and corporate clients in a wide range of industry sectors, from medical to insurance.
“I had already been working with ONV LAW on several projects and setting up the Corporate Crimes and investigations practice came as a natural step forward. I welcome the great challenges and opportunities ahead and I am delighted to join the team,” added Cătălin.
