Integration with other Russin & Vecchi Offices: The Vietnam offices work closely with other Russin & Vecchi offices in Asia, Washington, D.C., New York and elsewhere. Each office is a separate professional entity, and attorneys in other offices provide legal services upon specific arrangements, and in order to meet a client's needs. In such cases, the firm is able to utilize the expertise available in other offices in order to address each client's matters. This results in efficient utilization of the firm's lawyers, and keeps rates competitive, thus reducing client's legal costs.
