Lucian is registered for direct access and qualified for litigation. A dual national of France and Romania, he speaks English, French and Romanian.

Lucian said of his appointment “After almost ten years in law firm life in the UK and France, I am excited and honoured to be joining as a tenant a set of the calibre of Outer Temple Chambers. I look forward to continuing to develop the arbitration and international litigation practice while working with friends and colleagues around the world acting as counsel and arbitrator”
