Clifford Chance has been present in Romania since 2006 and operates as Clifford Chance Badea. Last year, Clifford Chance Badea has advised in most of the representative transactions successfully closed in Romania this year, with equity deals worth around EUR 5 billion, and debt transactions of approximately EUR 10 billion. Landmark deals include the historical listing of Hidroelectrica, the sale of Enel Romania, the Eurobonds programs implemented by CEC Bank, Banca Transilvania and Unicredit Bank, and the OMV Petrom GDRs delisting from the London Stock Exchange. A major win in the Litigation practice was the final ruling to cancel one of the largest fines imposed in recent years by the Competition Council, amounting to EUR 13.5 million, in an investigation into an alleged abuse of a dominant position targeting an important telecom player.
