Gabriel Biriș Named Secretary of State for Fiscal Legislation at the Ministry of Finance. Biriș Goran will continue to be managed by existing co-managing partner Victor Constantinescu, who will be joined by Gelu Goran

Bucharest, 14 December 2015. Biriș Goran is delighted to announce that one of its founding partners, Gabriel Biriș, has been asked to serve as Secretary of State at the Ministry of Finance, responsible for legislative reform in the field of taxation.  The Ministry of Finance, led by Minister Anca Dragu, chose Gabriel on the basis of his many years of experience on tax matters and tireless efforts in the public arena fighting for tax reform that would lead to a positive impact in the country’s development.  International legal guides have ranked Gabriel and Biriș Goran’s tax practice as among the best in the country for many years running.

Gabriel has accepted the position, effective immediately, and the decision was published in the Official Gazette (ro. Monitorul Oficial).  According to existing legislation in force, Gabriel was required to suspend his membership in the Bucharest Bar.

Biriș Goran will continue to be managed by existing co-managing partner Victor Constantinescu, who will be joined by Gelu Goran in the management role in Gabriel’s absence.  The tax department will be run by Ruxandra Jianu, whom clients have known and enjoyed working with for many years.

Partners of Biriș Goran added:

Ruxandra Jianu: "Obviously we will miss having someone of Gabriel’s calibre.  But we have the same resources and know-how to continue to serve our clients at the highest level." 

Victor Constantinescu: "Gabi and I have worked together for 10 years.  While we’re sorry to have him go, his appointment is a vindication of his tireless efforts at seeking tax reform, without any personal or other gain other than to see a genuine improvement in the Romanian business environment.  We need more people in government like him to re-establish trust, and I speak for the entire Biris Goran team in that we hope he succeeds.  And we will welcome him back when the time comes.  In the meantime, it is business as usual, as we expect all of our practice areas to continue to grow.  Ruxandra is a rare talent in the tax field, so she will certainly continue to service clients and grow the business."
