The Romania IP/TMT is a relatively new table, ranking law firms that are particularly active in both areas, while the lawyers are ranked in separate tables according to their specialisations. The leading law firm in this area is Țuca Zbârcea & Asociații, which stands out for its strength in both Intellectual Property matters and work in the Telecommunications, Media and Technology sectors.
The Intellectual Property rankings cover both contentious and non-contentious work, including invalidity claims, prosecutions, infringement cases, unfair competition, counterfeiting and portfolio management. The lawyers handle patents, trade marks and copyright work. Among the best lawyers for Intellectual Property matters in Romania are Răzvan Dincă of Răzvan Dincă & Asociații and Ana Maria Baciu of Simion & Baciu.
The TMT rankings highlight those lawyers who specialise in advising clients from the telecommunications, media and technology sectors on regulatory and licensing matters. The ability to handle data protection mandates is also becoming increasingly important. The top-ranked lawyers in Bucharest for this work are Cătălin Băiculescu and Vlad Cercel of Țuca Zbârcea & Asociații and Adina Chilim-Dumitriu of Nestor Nestor Diculescu Kingston Petersen.
