Raluca Gatina - Legal Adviser

Raluca brings a practical solution oriented approach in identifying priorities, crafting implementation plans for business performance and growth for legal departments. Since 2008, she has been working for some of the most appreciated institutes and law firms in Romania. She has started her career in 2008 as a Legal Adviser for the Chamber of Commerce of Romania, being responsible for setting up new companies, modify status of existing companies and handling the bulletin of insolvency proceedings. She has successfully continued on this path until 2011 when she received the opportunity to continue her career as a Legal Adviser at one of the most important law firm in Romania: ” Dicu Levente& Associates“ where she offered legal assistance for the first line clients of the company, represented the interests and defended the legitimate rights of the company, provided ongoing advice and information management on legislative changes, drafted legal documents and contracts. During this time she also worked as a Mediator, managing to solve some of the most challenging cases for the company clients or for external clients. Raluca maintains the belief that mediation saves time and money for disputing parties by enabling them to communicate directly with each other. This allows the parties to deal with the real issues at hand. Mediation empowers the parties to solve their dispute by finding a solution that is sensible and workable to them instead of having a decision imposed on them by a third party. She was one of the top key employees of the firm until 2015, when she took up another opportunity and moved to Dubai, in order to seek new challenges for her career path.

Raluca will be acting as the Legal Adviser for the company and as point of contact for inquiries and requests from customers and partners for all consulting and advisory services.
