I find the IFLR1000 an up-to-date and credible source for selecting and sourcing new legal firms in a new business area or country, and to compare legal firms capabilities in different practices.
I find the tiered rankings particularly useful when benchmarking and comparing between existing legal firms, plus looking at unfamiliar legal practices or locations.

Led by Alexandru Munteanu, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Legal has had a stable year. The firm consolidates its position in tier 2. It acts mainly for multinational and domestic companies with foreign investment. The firm offers its clients international and local expertise that comes from both the legal and tax perspectives. The firm is a member of the wider PricewaterhouseCoopers network, which is made up of over 2000 commercial lawyers in 75 countries. As a result, tough mandates are carried out with the support of PwC colleagues abroad. "PwC has a large operation in Moldova and can draw on its international network for cross-border expertise," one client says.
The firm carried out the due diligence of a large Moldovan company. Alongside the legal due diligence report was the financial due diligence report also prepared by PwC. This was used by the client in negotiations with the target. If the target is successfully acquired, then this can become an important M&A transaction between Moldovan companies. Also, Munteanu along with Silvia Grosu advised a German company in the retail industry on the sale of 100% of its shares in a Moldovan subsidiary. "Alexandru Munteanu is a real professional in his field of activity," one client says. "He is very responsive and very client oriented. I enjoyed cooperating with him."
