Kinstellar wins award for the largest transaction in the agriculture sector at the annual Lawyers’ Gala in Romania

September 2019 – Kinstellar is pleased to announce that our Bucharest office has been awarded the prize for the largest transaction this year in Romania’s agriculture sector at the 10th Annual Lawyers’ Gala organised by the business daily Ziarul Financiar. The award relates to advice provided to Brise Group on its agreement with CEE Equity Partners regarding the modernisation and development of its grain silos. The EUR 60 million deal has facilitated the creation of the first open-access agriculture infrastructure platform in Romania.

Congratulations to our Bucharest team: Răzvan Popa, Partner, Head of Kinstellar’s local M&A practice and lead lawyer on the matter; Zsuzsa Csiki, Counsel, and Andrei Caloian, Senior Associate.

Răzvan Popa comments: "Year after year we successfully advise on large transactions. Last year we advised Agricost on the sale of the largest grain farm in Europe to Al Dahra Group, while this year we advised Brise Group. I strongly believe that Romania offers increasingly more opportunities for significant transactions in the agricultural sector."

Our Bucharest office was also nominated for two other awards at the Lawyers’ Gala: the largest transaction in the real estate sector for advice provided to Lion’s Head Investments in relation to the closing of its acquisition of Oregon Park (with Victor Constantinescu as lead lawyer on the matter); and the largest transaction in the energy sector for advising MET Group on the acquisition of RWE Energie Romania (with Iustinian Captariu as lead lawyer on the matter).

The Lawyers’ Gala is a local event honouring excellence in legal advisory services organised annually by Ziarul Financiar, the most reputable business newspaper in Romania. The Lawyers’ Gala nominates and awards Romanian law firms that mediated the largest transactions in the previous year and the first half of the current year.

The award and nominations our Bucharest office received are an honour, and we value the recognition of our expertise and excellent service.
