We take great pride in our small team of brilliant minds. So here they are:
Raluca Danessenior associate
is our senior associate, who boasts her age in experience and an accomplished dual advisory and litigation focus. Her work ethic and technical skills put us all to shame and her leadership instinct puts to rest any qualms over the future of the firm. Raluca has a diverse pro bono and public interest portfolio, in which we love to be dragged into regularly. We like her because she is funny, she hails from Cluj (where she went to law school) and that she’s is the type of person you’d call when you have to call a friend on “Who wants to be a millionaire”. If you are in that situation (or you need solid legal advice) she can be contacted at email@example.com.
Alexandru IordacheDean and Founder
is the Dean and Founder of the firm, with decades of legal experience in Romania. Before joining the Bar in 1992, he was in law enforcement, so he’s seen both sides of the ‘barricade’. His experience stretches from general litigation, to tax and to white collar crime, but more importantly he is a cool, clear head and we all revert to him to get the big picture and strategic brilliance. Like most wise people, he is also an eclectic reader, a patient gardener and a creative cook.
Razvan StanMaster Litigator
spearheads our litigation practice. He boasts having seen it all in Romanian courts, from human rights disputes to complex tax litigations and, seeing him work, we believe him. We all rely on him for tactical vision and unbeatable court presence, as well as good humor and an endless supply of “war stories” from the court room. You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Antonia ZahariaResearch Associate
Antonia is a long-standing member of our legal crew. She is a law graduate from University of Bucharest and joined us in 2015 as Quarter Master and subsequently joined our legal research team. Antonia has strong experience in Corporate law and civil procedure and is a joy to work with. She is also the house supplier of outrageously unhealthy sugary treats. We’re still working on that. You can reach out to her in confidence for any matter related to the office at email@example.com
Paula is our student in training, joining us from the University of Bucharest. Smart, resilient and determined, we have no doubt she’ll be top of the world in just a few short years. Not everyone has the grit to voluntarily submit to our lawyer-making treatment, so we’re grateful she’s chosen us. Say hi to her at firstname.lastname@example.org (don’t ask.)
Malina AldeaInternational Counsel (Paris)
Malina is our Sherpa in Paris in all matters litigious. She is an experienced lawyer member of the Bucharest (since 2009) and Paris Bar (since September 2016). Malina was a member of the litigation teams in two of Romania’s leading law firms. She acted for numerous financial institutions and corporations assisting her clients in civil, commercial law, banking and consumer litigations. Malina is educated both in Romania and France and holds a Master Degree in Business Law from Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
Dr. Sorin BoldiSpecial Counsel
With a wealth of experience in (we suspect) pretty much everything related to business and the law, Sorin joined us as Special Counsel in 2018. He focuses on mergers and acquisitions and the financial markets and spearheads the development of our general commercial practice. Sorin started his career as assistant to litigation legend Dr. Constantin Visinescu in the early ’90s and recent appointments of note include membership of the Board of Directors of SAI Muntenia Invest SA and Practic SA (current). He is also a founding partner with Chartered Debt Management. Sorin has a Ph.D. in Philosophy and is a member of the Bucharest Bar.
Raluca PopescuResearch Associate
Raluca Popescu is our bright young research associate who joined us in 2017 to support the advisory team. Because she is the youngest “Raluca” of the crew, she has to put up with being called occasionally “Popescu”. She graduated from University of Bucharest Law School, where she now pursues graduate studies in Business Law. She is always active in our events programme and we are really thankful that she puts up with our general nuttiness. She can be reached at email@example.com.
Raluca NechimisSpecial Counsel
is our public procurement guru and a consummate contracts law specialist. Importantly, she is an enthusiast charity worker and passionate reader of philosophy.
She joins forces with the firm, after a stellar career in senior and managing positions with top three firms in Romania.
Raluca studied procurement law, business law and arbitration in Europe and USA with the best of the best. She is a contributor, speaker and trainer on various legal aspects of business life in Romania.
Dr. Anna de LucaInternational Counsel
is an authority in public international law, an active and responsible citizen of the world and a passionate teacher. Anna regularly lectures in international investment law and trade law at Bocconi University in Milan. She is a member of the Milan Bar and for the past decade she has built a solid name in the field. In fact, Anna has been recently appointed by the Italian Republic as a member of the list of
conciliators at ICSID. She acts as international counsel in partnership with our firm on sophisticated client mandates as well as non-profit and academic endeavours.
Adrian IordacheManaging partner
Adrian proudly runs the firm as Managing Partner. Adrian is an international lawyer with particular interests in business law, commercial disputes and international arbitration, as well as aviation law. Adrian is widely recognized as a pragmatic, business-first attorney, with a deep knowledge of both the international environment and local complexities. In his spare time, Adrian is absolutely convinced that cognitive psychology will change this century in deep and interesting ways and he’ll tell you all about it if you drop him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
