Bucharest, September 30th – Starting with October 1st, 2019, the law firm Mareș / Danilescu / Mareș will change its name to Mareș & Mareș, thus strengthening its practice in its core competence of criminal law, with a secondary emphasis on civil litigation. Mareş & Mareş is already the first option for clients that require these legal services.

“The complexity of economic crime and corruption cases, in which our law firm has been involved over the last few years, requires us to ensure the highest standards in the exercise of defence. We have now set out to strengthen this practice, to focus on commercial criminal case law, and to a lesser extent on civil litigation, so that we may provide such services within a short period of time to both clients and other law firms that do not have the capacity to react as quickly in urgent cases,” stated Mihai Mareș, the coordinator of the law firm.

Lucian Danilescu, a previous member of Mareș / Danilescu / Mareș, will carry out his activities on his own from the same date, October 1st,2019.

The solid experience of all the partners, accumulated from earlier engagement with prestigious local and international law firms, doubled by the cohesion, flexibility and shared values of the young team, places Mareș & Mareș among the elite companies of Romania. In 2016, the law firm became a member of ROXIN Alliance, a global network specialized in “white-collar criminal law”.

Criminal lawyer Mihai Mareș, the coordinator of Mareş & Mareş, is the only Romanian lawyer revealed in this year’s edition of the international legal guide Legal 500 – EMEA, under the “Leading Individuals” category, for his local practice in White-Collar Crime. In the 2019 edition, the international legal guide states that Mihai Mareș, the coordinator of the white-collar crime practice, is “the lawyer one must turn to, in Romania, for any issues related to white-collar crime “. Mares is “a true professional, brilliant for both individual and corporate clients” and has in-depth experience in the field of white-collar criminal defence, compliance in criminal matters, international investigations, extradition, and in cases related to transnational crime.


Mihai Mareş has extensive experience in criminal-economic cases. His practice focuses mostly on the representation of executive directors, entrepreneurs, large industrial groups, financial institutions, and large international and local companies across a wide range of areas encompassing accounting, financial and tax fraud, bribery, or violations to competition and environmental rules.

Mihai Mareş coordinated the Bucharest office of Garrigues, the prestigious international business law firm; after the latter’s withdrawal from the local market, Mihai Mareş set up his own law firm in September 2011.
