Diana provides legal representation in relation to civil and commercial litigation.

She has been coordinating teams engaged by large corporations and entrepreneurial businesses active in a variety of industries, with a particular focus on sectors such as automotive, retail, real estate, oil and gas industry and technology. Her expertise also includes providing legal representation to public entities.

In addition to her court activity, Diana is regularly involved in designing the strategy for potential cases, negotiating or assisting on pre-litigation matters. By way of example, she was involved in a legal audit concerning the activity of two city halls (either as plaintiff or defendant), focusing on the legal advice received by the institutions to determine whether the city halls’ rights were protected by such.

Also, she has extensive experience in dealing with tax and administrative disputes, as well as in criminal law, with emphasis on white collar matters.

Complementing her professional activity, Diana is a lecturer on legal matters during courses and training sessions dedicated to students or lawyers seeking further professional development. She was part of the JUST Access project that circled some of the reputable university centers in Romania with the main objective to increase the access to justice for citizens. Also, she was part of the team who drafted de lege ferenda proposals aimed at improving the legislation concerning the access to justice for the vulnerable persons.

Currently, Diana is a lecturer with the National Institute for Lawyers’ Professional Development and holds classes for trainee lawyers on Civil and Civil Procedure matters. Also, she is an active member of the Leaders for Justice programme.
