Ciprian Timofte: “I’m very proud and honored to be among the winners of the 2019 Euromoney Europe Rising Stars in its inaugural edition. I had pleasant conversations with most of the shortlisted lawyers and I was glad to find that we share similar ideals, values, and similar concerns. I really felt the vibration and energy of the new generation of lawyers, already true leaders of the profession and, without a doubt, “tomorrow makers”. As for the award, although it is an individual distinction, I sincerely believe that it represents the fruit of a perfect synergy between passion and dedication, on the one hand, and an environment of professional and human excellence in which I have the opportunity to work, on the other hand.”
