Zamfirescu Racoti Predoiu opens its first territorial office in Cluj
Bucharest, May 10, 2012 – Zamfirescu Racoti Predoiu Attorneys at Law (ZRP) extends its activity by establishing a secondary office in Cluj, a decision that is part of the territorial development strategy of the law firm. The project of extension of the law firm’s operations in Cluj area was initiated a few months ago, and presently all administrative actions for the functioning of the local office are completed.
The presence of a significant segment of ZRP clients’ portfolio in the region, the increase of the need of high-quality legal services in the area, the significant development of the local business environment in the last period, as well as the tendency of the multinationals to relocate or to open subsidiaries in Cluj county and the neighboring areas are factors that contributed to the decision to open an office in the territory.
“We have clients in the Western area of the country and we intend to be closer to them, to render more efficient the legal services offered to them. The presence of the ZRP attorneys at law in the region will shorten the time of response to the current legal requests and will help us to quickly adapt to the requirements of the local market. We are currently unfolding dispute, consultancy and insolvency projects for local clients”, Stan Tîrnoveanu, Managing Partner of Zamfirescu Racoti Predoiu, motivated the decision to launch the first local office.
The office from Cluj is coordinated by Laura Retegan, Ph. D and Senior Associate in the Litigation department of ZRP from 2007. Laura Retegan graduated from the Faculty of Law (2005, first B.A.), Babes-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca, and specializes in civil law, commercial law, banking law and insolvency. The development project provides the hiring of local associates, and currently the law firm is unfolding a process of recruitment in order to enlarge the ZRP Cluj team.
“ZRP Cluj team will benefit both from the experience and know-how of Laura Retegan, and from the entire operational, logistics, human and financial support of ZRP Group. The activity of the local office is perfectly integrated in the activity of the ZRP group of firms, of which Zamfirescu Racoti Predoiu Attorneys at Law, the tax advisory firm ZRP Tax SRL and ZRP Insolvency SPRL are part”, Stan Tîrnoveanu added.
