Act Legal Botezatu Estrade Partners has recently announced it welcomed a nine-person team from Consortium Legal – including Partners Stelian Mic, Barna Bolonyi, and Valeriu Timus – in "a friendly integration and a strategic step forward."

According to Act Legal, Consortium Legal is a Bucharest-based law firm best known for its tech-savvy regulatory, sports law, and litigation lawyers. "This joining of forces goes beyond a mere business strategy, as several attorneys in both firms share a professional history with the Act Legal team, having previously worked together in other firms," their press statement read.

Mic focuses on highly regulated industries such as environment, online platforms, financial services, and blockchain-based industries. He had established his previous firm, Mic Iordache Bolonyi, back in 2018. Before that, he led the Mic Law Office for five and half years. Earlier, he was a Senior Associate with Eversheds in Romania for a year, spent ten months with Socar in 2014, and four years with Kinstellar from 2009 and 2013. He started out with Bulboaca & Asociatii in 2007.

Bolonyi specializes in litigation with a focus on civil, commercial, and administrative proceedings, and IP, labor, arbitration, enforcement, and insolvency. He joined Mic Iordache Bolonyi in 2021 after having spent the previous three years with Stalfort & Somesan. Earlier, he was a Managing Associate with Musat & Asociatii, for a year and a half, and spent seven years more with Stalfort Legal Tax Audit. He began his career as a Trainee Lawyer with the Rosca Law Office in 2006.

Timus has a background in labor, corporate, and M&A and focuses on real estate, construction, labor, and regulatory projects. He had initially established Consortium Legal back in 2012 and later also joined Mic Iordache Bolonyi as a Partner, in 2020.

The three Partners were joined by Senior Counsel Isabela Delia Popa, Counsels Angela Cristea and Cristina Dutescu, Senior Associate Elena Costescu, Associate Cristina Ceausu, and Junior Associate Iulia Mitrache.

"We are very, very happy to welcome the team at Consortium, and we are sure our clients, on both sides, will notice the added value this brings," Act Legal Romania Managing Partner Stefan Botezatu commented.
