In 2016, and again in 2017-2019, Dr Vlad has undertook, managed and executed two very complex international probate procedures, for Their Late Majesties Queen Anne of Romania and, respectively, King Michael I of Romania. The successful completion of both estates has been a challenge which proved Dr Vlad's experience with all aspects of international estates, including cross-border documentation, Romanian bureaucracy, citizenship issues, interpretation of Wills, registration and tax for land and chattels, import-export of personal goods, estate tax and tax mitigation, as well as other, more specialist, areas of the law (Canon law, titles of nobility). He is a member of the Romanian Royal Council, an advisory body of the Royal Family.

During the last five years, Dr Vlad has also developed the contacts necessary to provide vital records from over 90 jurisdictions across the world, and has helped Romanian public authorities with this expertise, which is now made available to you.

Dr Vlad is an accomplished author and public speaker, who is now available to help you secure your rights in Romania during the COVID-19 crisis, as well as provide continuous Romanian legal expertise and situational updates for clients abroad.
