New York, January 4, 2021 – Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP is pleased to announce the appointment of Mrs. Nicoleta Timofti as a partner in its Geneva office.
Nicoleta Timofti is an experienced U.S. qualified litigator, whose practice includes white collar criminal defense, Anti Money Laundering (AML) and international corruption, internal investigations, asset recovery, including asset tracing, as well as complex commercial cross-border litigation. Her recent commercial litigation experience includes successful representation in civil Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO), Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), and Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA) cases, as well as other civil matters in courts across the United States and abroad.
As a cross-border litigator, she advises clients on a variety of issues relating to international dispute resolution, such as forum selection, jurisdiction, service of process, and is accustomed to navigating international legal systems (civil, criminal, administrative), enforcement proceedings, international discovery and insolvency proceedings. She has worked in government and private practice in the U.S. and is trained in both common law and civil law legal systems. Mrs. Timofti is notable for her experience in emerging markets, particularly former CIS states, Eastern Europe and Asia, and is fluent in four languages.
Curtis’ Geneva Managing Partner, Marco Blanco, said: “Nicoleta’s litigation and white collar criminal defense focus brings a further dimension to our team in Geneva, which already boasts international arbitration, international finance, international trade, international tax and public international law capability. Her experience of collaborating with law enforcement authorities and regulators in the U.S. and internationally is of great benefit to the firm’s EMEA-based clients.”
Nicoleta Timofti said: “ My practice has always straddled the U.S and Europe. Being based in Geneva makes me far more accessible to my European-based clients, but still part of a dynamic and experienced litigation team in the U.S. I know my clients are excited about the move, and I relish the opportunities ahead.”
The hire is one of several recent internationally oriented appointments in Europe. Curtis Paris welcomes four new partners from the highly recognized French corporate firm Bichot & Associés in the same week, and in November, Curtis London brought on partners Anthony Edwards and Marc Hammerson.
