Lidia Duţu-Cȃrstea has over 14 years of experience in tax advisory, as well as experience as in-house Tax Manager for a well-known FMCG manufacturer, leader on the Romanian market. Her focus is on international tax structuring and transfer pricing.

Lidia advises clients on a wide range of tax matters, from local tax particularities to international tax aspects customarily encountered in complex M&A transactions - business restructuring schemes, entries or exits from the Romanian market. In addition, she has solid knowledge on aspects concerning individual taxation, being involved in projects on designing and implementing efficient remuneration schemes for individuals.

She is a key member of the multidisciplinary DLA Piper team that provides assistance to start-ups - Romanian entrepreneurs who are expanding on local and foreign markets. Such projects are sophisticated, require a good understanding of operational complexities and have little to no precedent on the local market.

Over the years, Lidia coordinated tax projects, from proposal until delivery stage, for multinational clients from various industries, such as Technology, Aviation, Manufacturing or Retail.

Lidia is a certified Tax Advisor, member of the Romanian Chamber of Tax Advisors.
