Victor Constantinescu, Partner, Head of Real Estate SEE, Kinstellar
Victor is the Managing Partner of Kinstellar’s Bucharest office and the Co-Head of the firm-wide Real Estate practice.
With almost 20 years’ experience in real estate focusing on Romania and the wider SEE region, Victor represents an array of international real estate funds and other real estate players across all sectors. Victor has built a reputation for efficiency and a “no-nonsense” commercial approach in organizing and closing transactions in the billions of EUR over his career and for building long-term relationships – skills that have earned him recognition as a top real estate practitioner for years in a row by major legal guides.
A Canada-born, native English speaker, he began his career in the United States. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania, a graduate degree in Russian and East European Studies at the University of Toronto, and law degrees from McGill University in Canada. He is admitted to the New York and Bucharest Bars. Before joining Kinstellar, Victor had worked for law firms in Romania and the US. While he has been tasked with various managerial roles in the firm, Victor is a transaction lawyer at heart, and enjoys what he does.
Leading international legal directories such as Chambers, Legal 500 or other benchmark publications recommend him for being “very approachable and easy to engage in any project”. He is further recognised for “his deep knowledge of the industry”, as well as “leading understanding and application of law coupled with transactional experience.” Other interviewees praise him: “Victor Constantinescu is very hands-on, provides very good advice, has a lot of experience and knows how to handle any problems.”
