MPR Partners opens its first UK office

We are delighted to announce that we have officially opened an office in the heart of legal London.

Our London office is headed by the firm’s co-founder and co-managing partner Alina Popescu. Our main objective is to support clients with operations across the UK and the EU, bridging the geographical gap during the Brexit transition and beyond.

Our main practice areas in London will focus on technology, competition law, data privacy, insolvency and restructuring, employment law, international trade and investment, international arbitration, life sciences, aviation, sports law and financial services.

Alina commented: “We are delighted to announce the launch of our London office. With Brexit and the ensuing opportunities, the new office is a natural step forward that will meet our existing clients’ demand for law firms with an international presence and hopefully help us to tap into new markets.”

“Our international recognition to date and the outstanding feedback from our international clients, many of whom were hoping for us to expand abroad, give us the confidence that the opening of a London arm is the right move at this stage of our firm’s development.”

Local hires in London are hopefully to start soon. In the meantime, we have a legal team with substantial experience in a wide range of practice areas and an extensive network of contacts across the globe, which allows us to successfully and effectively handle any mandate.

Additionally, Gelu Maravela, co-founder and co-managing partner, commented: “We are thrilled to be opening an international office in London, a visionary city that boasts unparalleled legal expertise and a huge potential for businesses. As a result of the pandemic, we have realised the ever-growing importance of innovation and transboundary reach.”

Gelu added: “Though it may seem like an ambitious move at this time, looking back at the numerous achievements of our past years together, MPR Partners has always been a bold firm and we don’t plan this to change anytime soon. We are deeply grateful to all our partners for their support in making this happen.”
