NGL Symbio, an international alliance of independent law firms, becomes officially operational starting with 1st of January 2021

On 1 January 2021, NGL Symbio is officially operational, and our international alliance of independent law firms becomes live.

This new international alliance is built by partnering strong law firms in the CEE region: BIRIȘ GORAN in Romania, Rowan Legal in the Czech Republic, NGL Legal in Poland, Erdos Katona in Hungary, HKV in Slovakia, and the sixth member supporting operational aspects – NGL Services in Poland.

NGL Symbio offers a unique solution on the market as the alliance structure respects each member’s independence. At the same time, processes and tools are in place to create integrated services necessary to conduct cross-border projects.

We firmly believe NGL Symbio is a new option on the market for clients looking for well-organised, integrated service originating from the CEE region. We can now offer similar services that other international networks do, with the additional benefit of optimisation of the project management processes by making them more transparent, lean, and cost-effective.

With 1 January 2021, NGL Symbio launched the first six integrated specialisations – Banking & Finance, Corporate M&A (practices), Real Estate, Energy (industries), and lastly, Cannabis Law and Investigations (initiatives). What it means is we have identified these areas and supported the integration of our experts across the region, exchanged know-how and expertise, and set up relevant offerings for clients.

We will be adding new ones quarterly.

Our offer is dedicated for large and mid-market clients operating either locally, in the CEE/BBA (Baltics, Balkans, Adriatic), or internationally as we are also well connected in other jurisdictions in the Americas, EMEA, and APAC.

BIRIȘ GORAN is a business law firm with 45+ attorneys and tax advisors founded in 2006 and extending its practice in areas such as: tax, real estate, corporate and M&A, antitrust/competition, litigation, labor, energy, intellectual property law, privacy and data protection as well as insolvency.
