  • Raluca Danes
    Raluca Danes lawyer

    is a bright young lawyer with frighteningly solid technical skills. She’s into commercial disputes and business law in general, as well as many and diverse pro bono and public interest projects. We like her because she is funny and 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 raluca@iordache.partners.

  • Alexandru Iordache
    Alexandru Iordache Dean 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.

  • Cristiana Gheorghe
    Cristiana Gheorghe Lawyer

    is an effective, sharp and highly skilled litigator. We like her for her eagle-eye ability to unearth issues that no-one else can spot and use them to trip the opposing arguments. Cristiana is the lawyer we send to sort out an urgent mess based on limited information, because she is, simply put, fearless. She puts in a great deal of creativity in solving unique situations especially when the best solution is not the most obvious. And she does it all with a smile. She can be reached at cristiana@iordache.partners.
