About this office:
Russin & Vecchi is an international law firm with eleven independent but affiliated offices. The firm was founded in 1969 in Bangkok, Saigon, Santo Domingo and Washington, DC to create an international practice serving the developing commercial environment of Asia and Latin America. Additional offices were added in New York and in Taipei, Taiwan. With the conversion from a centrally planned to a market economy in Russia, in 1991 the firm opened an office in Moscow, followed by additional offices in Vladivostok and Sakhalin.
The Washington office of Russin & Vecchi provides assistance to all offices of the firm on questions of United States law, and offers initial guidance to United States clients seeking assistance in the foreign jurisdictions where firm offices are located. Jonathan Russin directs the office and, having managed the firm's offices in Russia and the Dominican Republic, he serves now as Senior Counsel to those offices.
