Sevinci Mujdaba began her career as a legal advisor before qualifying as a lawyer. During her career, she has worked in small and medium size law offices. Some of these firms were quite specialized, while others provide services in a wide array of fields. But in both types of firms, Sevinci honed her legal skills and knowledge across a wide spectrum of the law. Sevinci worked in the fields of intellectual property law, civil law, commercial matters, litigation, public procurement, and labour law. She has also worked as an intern in an office of a State Attorney.
Her work experience includes having drafted civil, commercial, and contentious notifications; actions and appeals; labour law actions and appeals; notifications and complaints on public procurement; and pleadings of the first instances, and courts of appeal. She has also assisted in negotiations leading to dispute settlements.
Sevinci worked both in Romanian and English, and she dealt with diverse clients, including international businesses, foreign nationals, and, of course, Romanians.
