Ms. Timofti’s international practice includes white collar criminal defense, AML and international corruption, internal investigations, asset recovery, including asset tracing, as well as complex commercial cross-border litigation.

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. 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.
Additionally, Ms. Timofti has provided strategic advice to clients on sensitive regulatory, sanctions, corporate raiding, civil and criminal forfeiture orders, Interpol, extradition and Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT) related matters, as well as international human rights and the rule of law.
Fluent in four languages, Ms. Timofti has worked extensively in emerging markets, particularly CIS states, Eastern Europe and Asia. Exceptionally sensitive to cultural and political aspects of those environments, she has advised on politically sensitive disputes, which included advisory work, advocacy, as well as managing the reputational risk of those involved.
