Cooperation with Russin & Vecchi Offices: From our New York base, Russin, Vecchi, Berg & Bernstein LLP cooperates in the exchange of specialized, country-specific legal expertise with other R&V offices. Because each office is an independent firm and a separate legal entity, clients pay only for the services and associated costs of the specific lawyers assigned to the project. This facilitates the timely, efficient, cost-effective delivery of legal services without unnecessary overhead.
