IR Global, the world’s largest exclusive network of advisory firms is delighted to introduce Gabriel Albu of Albu Legal. Gabriel has joined IR as our exclusive White Collar Crime member in Romania.
Albu Legal is a boutique law office launched on the market at the beginning of 2020 by attorney Gabriel Albu, one of the well-known pioneers of the white-collar crime niche in Romania. The law office is specialized in white-collar crime, criminal and administrative prevention, internal and anti-fraud investigations, human rights protection procedures, defense of the crime victims’ rights, as well as in any related litigation and non-contentious issues.
After a successful career in multinational law firms (Linklaters, CMS Cameron McKenna and Salans/Dentons), and in context of the then on-going organization and staffing of the elite prosecution divisions within the Prosecution Office of the High Court of Cassation and Justice (PICCJ), notably The National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) and Directorate for Investigation of Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT), in 2005, founding attorney Gabriel Albu focused his practice on the white-collar crime practice, in what then meant “pioneering” of the more “institutionalized” and sophisticated white collar crime niche, as opposed to the more classical practice of criminal defense, existing in the early 2000s and before. The team led by Gabriel Albu has extensive experience, dating from the beginning of this professional practice in the country, in what was in essence a contribution to the establishment of the “white-collar crime” practice area – at the sophistication level of today – on the Romanian legal market.
The highly-skilled team of attorneys, cumulating over 50 years of professional experience, was involved in several landmark cases throughout the years, offering legal assistance and representation to high profile companies and individuals involved in criminal investigations and trials – over 1,000 satisfied clients and accounts for more than 1 billion euros saved.
If you have a requirement in this area, please get in touch with Gabriel directly or with the IR Global head office for an introduction.
