Law firm Leroy si Asociaţii advised the French group Lactalis on the procedure of withdrawal of the minority shareholders of Albalact, a procedure completing the takeover of Albalact by Lactalis.

This was the first significant voluntary takeover bid on the Bucharest Stock Exchange. The Leroy şi Asociatii team, consisting of Bruno Leroy, partner, Andreea Toma, partner and Mădălina Ivan, senior associate, advised the French group on all legal aspects in connection with the squeeze out procedure.
