Zizzi will lead the Bucharest banking & finance group and will be a core member of the real estate team, covering Europe and beyond.
Perry Zizzi has nearly 19 years of experience practising law in the US, Latin America, Western Europe and the emerging markets of Central and Eastern Europe.

Bucharest Managing Partner Anda Todor commented: “I am very pleased to welcome Perry back to the firm. His return marks yet another step in Dentons Bucharest’s growth strategy, which saw the arrival of a new competition team in April. Perry’s previous experience with the firm and his strong reputation for legal excellence make him a great fit with our existing practice and a valuable addition to the team.”
Perry Zizzi added: “I’m delighted to be returning to Dentons. The firm’s dynamic approach is keenly attuned to the rapidly evolving demands of its clients making Dentons the market-leading choice.
