About us

Who are we?

We acknowledge, recognize, and anticipate the challenges our society, business environment, and entrepreneurs face. That is why MAXIM / Associates started and consolidated itself as a team of formidable and reference lawyers in the field of business law in Transylvania.
Based in the heart of today’s Cluj-Napoca, but at the border of the old medieval fortress of the city, we’ve built our career on the same coordinates: experience and tradition, strategy and innovation, all working for the success and prosperity of our clients and partners.
Our company was founded in the spring of 2016, having its headquarters in the main city of Transylvania. This phase occurred naturally, as a result of the reunion, since of 2014, of the experience and professional practice of our two founding lawyers.
What unites and defines us is a creed of full commitment to our profession as attorneys-at-law and to our clients and their affairs, team spirit, and the constant need for self-improvement. By applying our principles and core values, we formed and attracted a strong team of professionals, with a mixed background: legal, economic, tax and audit.
For the successful representation of our clients and their business needs, our team of lawyers is carefully selected to meet the highest professional standards and demands. Our lawyers are deserving graduates, with a prestigious academic background. This is because we strive to be not only a suitable partner for our clients but also a practical law school, where we train and shape the new generations of lawyers who will assist and guide tomorrow's business.

Vision, mission, value

Our vision is to represent the standard for excellence in the field of business law in Transylvania.
Our mission is to understand and anticipate business needs, to offer high-quality, results-oriented legal services that serve as a catalyst in all aspects of the growth and development of our client's business.
The main values that guide our activity are: authenticity, the belief that brilliant ideas find you working, strategic thinking and overview, attention to detail, and creativity. We all share a belief in our full commitment to our legal profession, to our clients, and to their business.
All these common principles are summarized within our MAXIM / Associates team.
