Real Estate


Real estate deals are becoming ever more complex. Increasingly they are cross border, highly structured and involve sophisticated financing arrangements. Zamfirescu Racoți Vasile & Partners assists institutional and private investors, multinationals, banks and developers with all of their real estate needs, from buying, selling and leasing property to financing and constructing major projects.

We were impressed with all of their knowledge and with their collaboration with us. We can only confirm the commitment of all the lawyers, which far exceeded our expectations. We were able to rely on the external lawyer’s support in the same way we could rely on our own coleagues
