Dzungsrt & Associates LLC is pleased to announce the continued growth of our firm with the promotions of our colleagues to partners and special counsel, effective as of 1 August 2020. Our Shipping Practice now has seven fee-earners, joining forces with seven members of our Dispute Resolution Practice.
Our Senior Partner, Mr Nguyen Manh Dzung, congratulates new partners and counsel on the occasion:
“We are immensely proud of the achievement of these talented lawyers who have made significant contributions to the success of our firm during the last ten years and would welcome them to new stages of their careers. Every one of them has demonstrated exceptional capabilities and collaborative teamwork which are essential to the delivery of great service to our clients across our areas of practice.”
These promotions strengthen our Shipping and Dispute Resolution Practices and underline our commitment to traditional clients, being international P&I clubs, H&M and cargo underwriters, international shipping lines, global companies and international law firms. They also represent our continued investment in practice areas that are increasingly important to businesses in Vietnam, such as arbitration and commercial litigation.
By making this announcement, we further look to clear any concern raised by improper conducts made and misleading information circulated recently.
