Memories of


Brandusa Tataru-Marinescu

This remembrance book is in loving memory of Brandusa, our clever, wise, funny, beautiful, lovely and loving friend and colleague, beloved wife, mum, daughter and sister.  She will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

Brandusa joined Kingsley Napley from Taylor Wessing in 2015 as a senior associate. She was our first specialist, non-contentious construction lawyer and became a partner in 2017. In her years with Kingsley Napley, Brandusa developed our construction practice from scratch to become a successful and respected team in the industry.

Many will remember Brandusa most for her dedication to responsible business at Kingsley Napley,  She was a passionate advocate for Diversity and Inclusion in particular, working tirelessly to raise awareness of Diversity and Inclusion issues, and spearheading many of the changes and breakthroughs Kingsley Napley have made in this sphere.

In recognition of her passion and achievements, in December 2020  we inaugurated with Brandusa the annual Brandusa Tataru-Marinescu Award for Diversity & Inclusion.  The purpose of the award is to advance the understanding of Diversity and Inclusion issues in society, through the study and application of law.  Brandusa was very happy that this will be done in her name.

Brandusa will always be with us in our thoughts.  Her qualities are instantly recalled: Brandusa was kind, she was considered, had patience, conviction and plenty of steel.
