Affiliations and recommendations[+]
- Member of Bucharest Bar since 2007;
- WTR 1000, 2017:
“The firm has built a tremendous reputation on account of its large phalanx of heavyweight IP litigators, who pen transparent briefs and plead with eloquence. The most renowned of these is former judge Dragoş Bogdan, who really comes into his own in fraught pharmaceutical matters and has useful complementary knowledge of competition law.”
- IAM Patent 1000, 2016 edition:
“Former judge Dragoş Bogdan provides incisive assistance to IP litigants, coupling outstanding procedural nous with deep knowledge of domestic and European case law.”
- Managing Intellectual Property (IP Stars 2017):
“Trade mark star, Patent star”
Dragoş Bogdan enjoys a wealth of experience acquired as a judge or as a civil servant and in various academic projects.
Dragoş Bogdan assisted and represented Romanian and foreign clients in numerous IP dispute resolution cases (trademarks, patents, industrial designs and models, unfair competition or intellectual property rights), competition law litigations, administrative and fiscal law litigations (especially in the pharmaceutical industry) and in the procedures set out in the European Convention on Human Rights.
Dragoş Bogdan participated in advisory projects and in the negotiation of civil and commercial contracts.
“Full-service law firm STOICA & Asociaţii is recommended for contentious soft IP work. It is one of the firms in this jurisdiction that is traditionally known to be strong in litigation. Former judge Dragoş Bogdan is in charge of its IP department. He is supported by a large team of junior lawyers.”
“Leading law firm STOICA & Asociatii commands the respect of rivals in patent litigation and IP transactions in Romania. Its IP department is led by Dragos Bogdan and veteran litigator Valeriu Stoica. In IP matters both senior practitioners are supported by a team of junior lawyers, including Irina Andreea Micu and Mihai Stanescu. “We see them in pharma litigation. Dragos is quite brilliant.”
„One of the best Romanian law firms generally, STOICA & Asociaţii has a particularly robust patent group. With its versatile capabilities, it can make light work of every mandate under the sun, from the drafting of intricate patent applications to the smooth negotiation of IP-rich deals. Dragoş Bogdan is intimately familiar with both domestic and foreign legal procedures. A former judge, he is an extremely experienced and insightful professional, especially when it comes to litigation. Managing partner Valeriu Stoica has “a fantastic track record in patent contentious cases.”

„ Contentious powerhouse STOICA & Asociatii emerges victorious from Romanian courtrooms with striking consistency. The firm has built a tremendous reputation on account of its large phalanx of heavyweight IP litigators, who pen transparent briefs and plead with eloquence. The most renowned of these is former judge Dragoş Bogdan, who really comes into his own in fraught pharmaceutical matters and has useful complementary knowledge of competition law.”
