Radu C. Pirvulescu

Radu has successfully represented clients before the Provincial Court and the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta. He has also assisted on applications to the Alberta Court of Appeal and to the Supreme Court of Canada.

Prior to joining JSS Barristers, he articled and practiced at a boutique Calgary litigation firm. Radu hails from Romania but has called Calgary home since his teenage years. After finishing his degree in Management and International Business at Mount Royal University, he obtained his Juris Doctor from Thompson Rivers University in British Columbia.

Radu is a member of the Young Canadian Arbitration Practitioners and the Advocates’ Society. During law school, he won the Dean’s Course Prize in Advanced Advocacy and volunteered as a mentor to 1L students. Radu volunteered with the Court of Queen’s Bench Assistance (QB Amicus) program at the Calgary courthouse, improving access to justice for self-represented litigants. He looks forward to continuing to find ways to give back to the community, be it in-person or remotely.


Prior to law school, Radu worked at the United States Consulate in Calgary. Involved primarily in the oil & gas and mining sectors, he aided the Consul General in cross-border diplomacy and trade development. He also spent time as a research analyst under the Chair of International Business at Mount Royal University, where he prepared reports on the Canadian textile industry that were presented to the United Nations Trade & Development Board.

In his free time, Radu enjoys travelling, playing tennis, reading, and spending time with friends and family. A trip to the mountains is never a waste of time for Radu, and he heads out to enjoy the fresh air and trails whenever he can.
