Excellence, innovation and perspicacity are the features defining, in the vision of VASS Lawyers’ clients, the practice of the law firm, not only in the Public Procurement and PPP expertise area, but also in the Dispute Resolution and Real Estate & Construction fields, as underlined in the Legal 500 EMEA 2020 ranking.

VASS Lawyers strengthens its position in 2020 as leader in the Legal 500 ranking in the field of Public Procurement and PPP as the team receives the highest number of recognitions on the Romanian legal market for this practice:
✔️ TOP-TIER FIRM in PPP and Procurement for the the 7th year;
✔️ LEADING LAWYER in PPP and Procurement for the 5th year;
✔️ NEXT GENERATION PARTNER in PPP and Procurement for the first year.

Based on the feedback received from the clients and partners of VASS Lawyers, Legal 500 emphasizes that the Top-Tier Firm VASS Lawyers is a highly regarded boutique, which focuses purely on contentious and non-contentious PPP and procurement issues. The firm acts for private sector clients, and managing partner Iulia Vass is a go-to figure in the market. The group has been involved in several major projects, including handling the tender and development of a university campus project, advising an oil services company on multiple services agreements, and assisting a dairy producer with a major food distribution agreement. Bianca Bello is very active on the advisory side, while recently promoted partner Alexandra Mititelu handles contentious work’.

Also, one of the client testimonials described the team as follows: ‘They have a vast experience in PPP and procurement, their legal advice is of the highest quality and their support and commitment is exemplary. They are extremely prompt, efficient, insightful and their creative approach has always helped us achieve the desired outcome.‘

Iulia Vass was recognised, for the fifth year in a row, as Romanian Leading Individual – Legal 500 EMEA for the Public Procurement and PPP expertise area. Iulia was acknowledged for her business insight, making her a consultant on top of being the legal service provider. Also, she was praised for being a ‘an impressive lawyer and consultant’, as well as a ‘deal maker, not a deal breaker’.

Also, Alexandra Mititelu was acknowledged as being one of the Next Generation Partners in Public Procurement and PPP, being recommended by Legal 500 as ‘faultless’.

The Dispute Resolution practice is likewise recommended by Legal 500: ‘VASS Lawyers excels in public procurement-related disputes. The group represents clients from across a range of sectors, including healthcare, automotive, infrastructure, IT, non-profit, and energy in their disputes with bidders and public authorities. Iulia Vass and recently promoted partner Alexandra Mititelu are highly regarded.”

In addition, regarding the Real Estate & Construction practice area, Legal 500 highlights that ‘VASS Lawyers stands out for its top notch public procurement expertise, and acts for a broad range of private sector clients on related real estate matters. This includes tender bids, project development and contractual advice, and any related litigation. Iulia Vass has a strong standing in the market’.

The constant presence of VASS Lawyers in the top Legal 500 ranking and the recognition from the law firm’s clients and partners reflect both the level of excellence of the legal services provided by VASS Lawyers and the complexity of the projects and the challenges VASS Lawyers faces on a daily basis. This is why, in the last 11 years, VASS Lawyers has been for its clients not only a business partner, but also a trustworthy and in for the long haul consultant.
