Gabriel Albu is one of the pioneers of this practice area in Romania, as it is understood today. He has been practicing law since 2002 and white-collar crime since 2005. He worked for top international law firms like Linklaters, CMS Cameron McKenna, and Salans (now Dentons). Since 2008, in independent practice, he has devoted himself entirely to white-collar crime. Gabriel Albu manages complex cases, providing the highest level of representation, involving in particular charges of tax evasion and fraud against the financial interests of the European Union, charges of corruption, financial fraud, and malfeasance, securities fraud, and public procurement fraud. He has a solid and broad experience in corporate criminal law, assisting and representing a large number of multinational and local companies, and associated individuals, in complex criminal proceedings falling under both national and international jurisdiction. Among many others, one recent success achieved by Gabriel Albu was the case publicly known as "Rompetrol II", where his team managed to obtain the dismissal of the criminal charges and release of significant assets from under freezing orders.
