Success is no accident. It’s hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all love of what you are doing or learning to do.

– Pele



In the past 15 years, sports and law have been part of my daily life. From an early age I started practicing football and years later I found myself part of the professional senior football team from my hometown.

It was a beautiful story and in order to continue I maintained through law the close connection I had with sports, in general, and with football, in particular. In 2007 I decided to attend the courses of the Faculty of Law at Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca from where I graduated in 2011. Same year I attended the L.L.M. program of International Business at the University of Leeds, United Kingdom, where I graduated in 2012.

I have been a member of Bucharest Bar since 2013, and in the last then years I assisted hundreds of sports participants (athletes, professional clubs, national and international federations, agents, etc) in various sports litigations both locally and internationally.

As a result of the experience gained in 10 years of practicing law, the natural step was to set up a Law Firm specialized in Sports Law field together with another person who breathes sports having the aim to fully contribute and have an impact in the field of local and international Sports Law.
