Ever since its establishment, Voicu & Filipescu has been one of the top ten Romanian law firms in terms of turnover, market position and reputation, having received constant recognition and awards from national and international research organisms.

In addition to the law firm, Voicu & Filipescu group also includes a dedicated tax and accountancy firm and a specialised insolvency practice.
In the procurement and PPP fields, Voicu & Filipescu covers the full range of legal assistance to both bidding consortia and awarding authorities in public procurement procedures under specific Romanian legislation, helping our clients safeguard their interests and striking the right balance of benefits to both parties.
Our experience includes analysing tender documentations and identifying possible breaches of the applicable legal provisions, preparing requests for clarification, assistance on the preparation of tender documents, preparing consortium and subcontracting agreements, taking part in tenders opening meetings, legal assistance in the negotiation, amendment, conclusion and execution of public procurement, PPP and concession contracts, follow up on such contracts and assistance in connection with the implementation of awarded agreements. In addition to advising our clients on the wide range of public procurement related legal issues, the firm itself has acted as bidder or subcontractor in procedures organised by a wide range of public authorities.
An important part of our relevant practice is represented by providing legal assistance in procedures initiated by the clients for challenging award decisions ruled by contracting authorities, both in front of the Romanian National Council for Solving Complaints and in courts. We have a particularly notable success rate in this area, having provided successful court representation in relation to award decisions related to contracts in an aggregate amount of more than €750 million for the past years.
