In his almost 30 years of experience, Cornel had the opportunity to be part of many large scale projects which helped define the current business and legal environment of Romania.

His legal work has been particularly focused in recent years on international and domestic arbitration.  He is acknowledged as one of the most experienced dispute resolution lawyers in Romania, having dealt with civil litigation, mediation, domestic and international arbitration and participated in hearings held in Romania, Western Europe and the United States of America, acting under the rules of major arbitration institutions, such as ICSID, ICC, LCIA, VIAC and the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague (as well as the UNCITRAL Rules, for ad-hoc arbitration). He is a member of the Managing Committee of the Court of International Commercial Arbitration (attached to Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Romania) and has been part of the drafting commission of the 2018 Rules of Arbitration of the court, which have been a founding stone of the modernization of arbitration in Romania and updating it to best international practices. He is also a member of the ICC Institute of World Business Law and acts as arbitrator in many domestic and international cases.

As part of his significant legal consultancy work, Cornel has assisted leading international investors bidding for privatized assets by the Romanian state. He also provided assistance to buyers and sellers of major private-owned companies, being involved in all stages of the sale process (due diligence, preparation of legal documents, negotiations, closing etc.).

In his day-to-day work, Cornel advises clients in connection with strategic business decisions, provides opinions and recommendation of actions in connection with corporate and commercial matters. He routinely takes part in the preparation and negotiation of business contracts in various industries.
