    I am a qualified lawyer who studied at the best law university in Romania. I am currently working in a top local law firm, focusing on litigation and arbitration matters while also doing consultancy work. My area of expertise covers a wide range of legal matters related to Romanian law and coupled with foreign (especially anglo-saxon) legal practices. I have been involved in various real estate matters (leases, acquisitions, due diligence), issues related to all aspects of contract law and subsequent negotiations as well as matters related to corporate law and regulatory approvals (i.e. incorporating a new company). I have excellent legal English skills and can deliver high quality work. My previous job was in a multinational law firm with 42 offices around the world, so I am used to working with foreign clients and meeting their expectations. I am looking for interesting legal projects which can complement my legal skills and help me focus on my areas of interest.  less
