Ilinca Trofin


Ilinca joined Stratulat Albulescu team in November 2020 as a Paralegal. She is mostly involved with the Corporate/ M&A and Life Sciences/ Healthcare groups, and whenever needed, Ilinca offers support to the other groups of the firm.

Born in Romania, Ilinca moved to South Africa in 1996 when she was 2 years old. She also lived in Malaysia, Madagascar and Nigeria before she resettled in South Africa in order to complete her studies. In the fall of 2020, she relocated to Romania and joined our team. Growing up in the above-mentioned countries, Ilinca had the opportunity to be exposed to various cultural backgrounds, which allowed her to enhance her communication skills and to easily learn various foreign languages. A native English speaker, she is also fluent in French, Afrikaans, Arabic (Lebanese dialect) and Romanian, being an outstanding asset with our foreign clients.

Ilinca holds some impressive educational credentials. She graduated from the American International School of Abuja (Nigeria) as valedictorian in 2014 and from University of Pretoria in 2019.

Ilinca’s passion for law and her unquenchable thirst for knowledge make her a highly valued member of the SAA team.
