Dentons’ Bucharest office has confirmed that Partner Perry Zizzi — who practiced with legacy Salans in Bucharest from 2003-2007, well before that firm merged into the new Dentons — has returned to the fold.
Zizzi leaves Clifford Chance in Bucharest after almost 7 years at that firm. Dentons reports that Zizzi, "will lead the Bucharest banking & finance group and will be a core member of the real estate team, covering Europe and beyond.”
Zizzi has nearly 19 years of experience practising law in the US, Latin America, Western Europe and the emerging markets of Central and Eastern Europe. He has advised on numerous real estate development, financing, acquisition and leasing transactions.
Dentons’ Bucharest Managing Partner Anda Todor commented: “I am very pleased to welcome Perry back to the firm. His return marks yet another step in Dentons Bucharest’s growth strategy, which saw the arrival of a new competition team in April. Perry’s previous experience with the firm and his strong reputation for legal excellence make him a great fit with our existing practice and a valuable addition to the team.”
Zizzi reports similar enthusiasm: “I’m delighted to be returning to Dentons. The firm’s dynamic approach is keenly attuned to the rapidly evolving demands of its clients making Dentons the market-leading choice. I am very much looking forward to contributing to the firms ambitious goals for growth in the region and building on the existing success of the team going forward.”
Zizzi’s move was first reported by CEE Legal Matters on July 10, 2014. He was featured as the “Expat on the Ground” in the April 2014 issue of CEE Legal Matters, readable here.
