I am an M&A and corporate lawyer in DLA Piper's Bucharest office.

What do I do as a lawyer? I help people fulfil their business ideas. I handle complex M&A projects as well as venture capital investments in startups. I have worked for venture capital funds and for Romanian entrepreneurs and am therefore familiar with both sides of the coin in an investment process.

I am particularly fond of the Technology sector, including FinTech. Romania has great potential in this field and I believe that we, as lawyers, can support its further growth. The Technology sector changes so quickly that the law can often not keep up; thus, innovation can find itself weighed down by outdated laws, unless innovative legal solutions are found. My belief is that great legal ideas make great business ideas happen. 

What do I do other than lawyering? I love travelling and just spending time with my family.
