History

The history of Zamfirescu Racoti & Partners is a story of teamwork, shared vision and innovation.

The firm’s roots trace back to 1995, very soon after the legal profession was liberalized in Romania. At that time, two future top law firms – Zamfirescu & Partners and Racoti-Predoiu - started their journey of building a mature business law practice with an international reputation.

Zamfirescu Racoti & Partners was founded by Calin-Andrei Zamfirescu and Ariana Zamfirescu, two attorneys with over 25 years of legal practice. A third partner, Stan Tirnoveanu, a specialist in banking law, joined at a later stage. Benefitting from the three attorneys’ legal acumen and reputation, the firm quickly became a leader in dispute resolution, arbitration, banking, finance, and insolvency.

Racoti-Predoiu was founded by Ioana Racoti and Catalin Predoiu, two young attorneys, who already at that time enjoyed the reputation as specialists in commercial transactions. The law firm rapidly developed into a key player in the field of mergers, acquisitions and privatizations, and gradually extended its services in the transactions on the capital market, in banking and finance, as well as in energy and natural resources.

The need to grow, a common vision and mutual respect brought the two firms together in 2005, when the full merger was realized. The resulting partnership has continued its work founded on integrity, talent, professionalism, dedication and innovation.

Zamfirescu Racoti & Partners acquired the reputation as a leading law firm in Romania, assuring both business and dispute resolution support and representation, with lawyers recognized for their scholarship, legal acumen and service to their clients.
