Gabriel takes over from Todd Robinson, who will continue to be based in Romania and remains committed to his role on the international leadership team and as a member of the Board.

“My medium and long term objectives are, firstly, to prioritise the consolidation of our market position in Romania, and secondly, to capitalise on our best in class industry specializations and expert legal knowledge which we are tailoring to meet the current needs of our local and international clients,” said Gabriel Sidere.

Gabriel Sidere graduated from the Law School of the Ecological University of Bucharest. He is a member of Bucharest Bar since 1997.

Under Todd’s guidance, the firm has developed into one of the leading and the largest international firm in Romania. Gabriel joined the CMS Cameron McKenna Bucharest office with Hayhurst Robinson in 2006 after having been a partner in Hayhurst Robinson.

The firm has been a regional player in Central and Eastern for the last two decades.

Currently the firm has offices in Bucharest, Budapest, Kyiv, Prague, Sofia and Warsaw, and in January 2009, CMS Cameron McKenna in Moscow merged with CMS Bureau Francis Lefevbre and CMS Hasche Sigle to create the CMS Russia, the largest law firm in Russia, with over 90 lawyers.
