Former Huawei Legal Director Alina Antonie has joined the Bucharest office of DLA Piper as a Counsel.

Before joining the international firm, Antonie served as the Legal Director of Huawei between 2018 and 2023. Before that, she was a Legal Manager with the PORR Group. Earlier still she worked for PwC as a Manager, Office of General Counsel between 2015 and 2016 and as the Legal Director of Vamed between 2010 and 2015.

Before moving in-house Antonie worked as a Senior Associate with Epure, Lizac & Associates between 2008 and 2010.

"Following years of acting as an in-house lawyer for big corporations, where you get a particular overview of the business, it is both challenging and motivating to take on a role in a law firm, especially, when that law firm is a global one, as is DLA Piper, where you get a fast-paced working environment and you always have to be up-to-date with the latest developments in all industry sectors" commented Antonie. "I feel that this move adds a new layer to my career, a full perspective on advisory work and I feel I can bring a significant contribution here. I made an ambitious goal of driving new business to our team, as well as continuing to support existing clients. On top of that, I am convinced that we will be able to retain our position as a leading legal services provider."
