Dumitrescu Bajenaru Oancea has merged with Zamfirescu Racoti Vasile & Partners in Bucharest, with Andrei Dumitrescu, Mihai Bajenaru, and Robert Oancea joining ZRVP’s management team as partners effective on January 1st, 2020. The consolidation will boost ZRFP's headcount to 65 lawyers, including 13 partners and 30 staff members.
“In a legal market during an era of spin-offs, ZRVP is the only leading Romanian law firm grown out of a merger," said ZRVP Managing Partner Cosmin Vasile. "We have been breeding top lawyers in the last 24 years and have evolved and developed our capabilities with the help of our own trained teams. Now it’s time to add external forces to our operations and to strengthen our ability to handle large projects. Starting with January 1st, 2020, ZRVP will integrate DBO, creating a powerful team of 65 lawyers able to meet more effectively the significant increase in demand we are seeing in all practice areas, as well as the ever-growing challenges of the business market. I am positive that the future will reflect the favorable outcome of the step we are taking now."
“The project we have developed in the last ten years has been following the general trends of the market," added Andrei Dumitrescu, "allowing us to seize the benefits of the particularities a small-sized law firm has to offer: fostering a close relationship with our clients and developing long-term partnerships with our stakeholders. This transaction supports the growth strategy and the goals set for the team coordinated by Mihai Bajenaru and me. Hence, the decision to join ZRVP is, past all doubt, the best decision to make."
