Anca Grigorescu LL.M.Eur


The devil is always in the details, but I am ready to give you the essence, so that you can take courageous decisions confidently.

Anca is a founding partner of the firm and heads the firm’s Employment & Benefits and Tax Practice groups.

Her practice includes advising companies operating in sectors such as TMT, life sciences, retail,  automotive & manufacturing, financial services, energy, real-estate and construction.

Anca has been involved in complex transactions requiring a multidisciplinary approach and she has advised extensively on tax, employment, and corporate and finance restructuring of cross-border transactions. Her practice also covers the development and implementation of corporate reorganisation schemes including outsourcing transactions and transfers of undertakings.

Anca regularly advises companies on all ongoing aspects of individual and collective labour law. She frequently supports clients with regard to senior executive contracts, non-executive arrangements, related corporate governance issues and contractual documentation, cross-border secondments, dual contracts, protection of confidential information, whistleblowing policies, privacy, and discrimination issues. She works closely with clients with advice in matters such as dismissal procedures, senior-management restructurings, collective redundancies, the establishment of employee representative bodies, collective consultation, trade-union relations, and union recognition/de-recognition matters. Anca also advises companies on stock option plans, incentive arrangements, employee share plans, and remuneration issues, as well as a wide range of senior-management and employee tax issues.

Anca’s in-depth knowledge of taxation issues, combined with over  20 years of experience, adds immense value to her legal advice, especially given that she provides comprehensive tax-structuring advice whenever required by the specifics of individual transactions. She supports clients regarding transactional tax aspects, tax structuring for future investments, and presale tax restructuring and optimisation. She has particular expertise in international cash management, thin capitalisation, and transfer pricing.

Another particular focus of Anca’s practice lies in asset and corporate financing, with a special emphasis on energy and real-estate projects.

Anca’s professional activity includes participation in various legislative committees for tax and employment law amendments. She has been at the forefront of the efforts of the Romanian business community to improve the Labour Code and related regulations.

As a multi-mandate chairperson of the AmCham Labour Committee, Anca has chaired many consultation meetings with central-government bodies, authorities and business community leaders.

She currently remains the chairwoman of this committee and leads the organisation’s initiatives on labour regulations.

Anca is a frequent speaker at conferences and various industry meetings and regularly contributes to international and local tax, legal, and business journals on Employment, Taxation, Investment Structuring and Financing issues.
