Practice Summary

Since completing pupillage in chambers in September 2020, Iulia focused on developing a busy public law and regulatory practice.

She frequently advises and represents local authorities in cases raising a wide range of public law issues. For example, Iulia was junior counsel in Sharif v Birmingham CC [2020] EWCA Civ 1488, where the Council argued successfully that it could obtain a s.222 LGA 1972 injunction to prevent car racing within its area.

Iulia is also often instructed by a wide variety of regulators. For the past year, she has been working closely with the Financial Conduct Authority’s Enforcement and Market Oversight Division assisting with an investigation into a potential breach of the rules regarding financial promotions, as well as advising on whether the FCA could seek restitution from a payment service provider following potential contraventions of the Money Laundering Regulations (SI 2017/692) and/or of the Payment Services Regulations (SI 2017/752). Iulia has also assisted an offshore regulator with a complex investigation into widespread allegations of anti-money laundering failings by various companies.

Additionally, Iulia is often instructed in lengthy trials concerning medical profession regulation. She frequently presents cases as counsel for authorities such as the Nursing and Midwifery Council and the Health and Care Professions Council. Complementing that practice, Iulia also defends doctors before the Medical Practitioner’s Tribunal in cases involving misconduct including fraud, and issues of competence.

Iulia is on the Attorney General’s C panel of junior counsel.

In her spare time, Iulia enjoys long classes of yoga, playing tennis, travelling, trekking and watching theatre plays.
