Roxana Catea

Managing Associate

Roxana Catea joined us as a Managing Associate in June 2020 after working for just over 7 years at Tuca Zbarcea & Asociatii. Prior to this Roxana also worked for one of the leading Big 4 associated law desks in Romania.

She has over 10 years’ experience in a wide range of litigation but her particular areas of expertise are in the commercial field including corporate litigation, insurance and bankruptcy litigation, insolvency and restructuring litigation, contract disputes, foreign judgement enforcement proceedings, professional and product liability and last, but not least, labour disputes.

Additionally, Roxana boasts extensive experience in the field of special procedures, including annulment of promissory notes, banking payment issues and procedures before the Financial Supervisory Authority in respect of regulation of Romanian insurance companies and court related disputes.

Roxana co-ordinates a second Dispute Resolution Group where her strong written communication skills coupled with her excellent language skills (she speaks no fewer than 4 languages being Romanian, Spanish, French and English) and her sharp analytical mind enable her to focus not only on the end result but on each and every step of the litigation process, ensuring the best defence is identified and implemented and keeping the clients’ business at the centre of her focus.

Roxana is also, impressively, studying for her PhD in Commercial Law whilst lecturing on the same at Nicolae Titulescu University’s Faculty of Law.
