Sintons lawyer appointed as Honorary Consul of Romania


 A lawyer from Sintons has been awarded the hugely prestigious role of being an Honorary Consul of Romania.

Cristina Falzon has become the Honorary Consul of Romania Morpeth-Newcastle, for the regions of Northumberland, Durham, Tyneside, Teesside, North Yorkshire and Cumbria.

Cristina, a dispute resolution associate at Sintons, becomes a key figure in UK-Romanian relations, actively promoting ties with the North East in particular and being a point of contact for any Romanian citizens in need of diplomatic support.

Prior to joining Sintons, Cristina worked as a solicitor for 11 years in Romania, meaning she is qualified in both legal jurisdictions.

Her appointment as Honorary Consul of Romania was confirmed in a ceremonial event in Newcastle with Laura Popescu, the Romanian Ambassador to the UK.

Cristina – recently hailed as a rising star by Legal 500 for her legal work – said: “This is a huge honour for me as a Romanian person to be asked to undertake this role in the region I now live with my family. I am truly honoured to become an Honorary Consul of Romania.”

Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons, added: “This is a hugely prestigious role for Cristina, which we know is of great personal importance to her as a Romanian living in the UK.

“She is an excellent lawyer who is a great asset to our dispute resolution team and we are are very proud that she has been selected for such an internationally-significant role.”
