Acting as a Senior Associate in both the Dispute Resolution and Commercial departments, Cristina specializes in employment law and administrative & fiscal litigation. She started working for Filip & Company immediately after her bar admission, back in 2013.
In the labour law field, Cristina has prominent expertise in various projects, from managing sensitive TUPE cases, managing the relationships with the top management, conflicts with trade unions, to economic restructurings and collective bargaining.
Highlights of her activity include assisting:
- one of the largest telecom operators on the Romanian market in an international arbitration seated in Vienna under the VIAC Rules, in a dispute concerning a claim for indemnity regarding certain matters related to the sale of its subsidiary in the Czech Republic;
- a major provider in the energy field in a series of labour litigations initiated by the trade union (in the name of over 3,000 employees) in relation to the application of the compensation scheme regulated by the collective bargaining agreement (the stake of these litigations is around EUR 100 million);
- a world leading business consultancy firm in a complex litigation opened by a former senior partner, involving the requalification of that relationship as an employment relation and direct accusations against other members of the firm.
