As of today, the firm will be benefiting under the new name also from Cosmin Vasile’s notoriety in the dispute resolution and arbitration areas.”
“It has been 17 years and a half since I have been offering everything to my firm, which firm, in turn, has been offering everything to me. The inclusion of my name in the firm’s one honors me and marks symbolically the opening of a new chapter of a beautiful story about work, passion, value and success named ZR(V)P”, Cosmin Vasile, Managing Partner, has added.
