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.

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.

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.
