About us

We are the Legal 500 Top-tier Law Firm and Leading Individual, recommended by the world's largest legal referral guide as no. 1 in Public Procurement and Public-Private Partnerships (PPP).

10 years of strategic advice in public procurement

VASS Lawyers reached its 10th year of legal practice in Romania, a journey marked by a great number of professional success and fantastic results. For the last 7 years in a row, the law firm held a leadership position for public procurement and public-private partnerships in the Legal 500 EMEA ranking and Iulia Vass, its managing partner, was recognized as the only Romanian lawyer in the Leading individuals – elite for the public procurement field.

Our focus on public procurement and PPP comes not only from the drive to work on meaningful projects with a great impact on the country’s development, such as infrastructure, health or education, but also from the mere fact that we love the European facet of public procurement and its interdisciplinary dimension. Public procurement was and remains our niche, main driver and top expertise. Certainly, in order to excel in this area, we refined our skills in related practices, such as dispute resolution, contentious administrative, contracts, competition or non-refundable funds and also in the regulations applicable to different industries specific to procurement projects.

In its 10 years of practice, the firm worked closely with renowned clients from Romania and international markets such as Japan, Norway, Austria, United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, New Zealand and Spain.


The first 10 years of practice were a confirmation that excellence, professionalism and a highly skilled team of lawyers are a good path to great results. Only in 2018, the total value of the projects assisted by our team raised to approx. €1,5 Billion. These projects have led more than once to the conclusion of valuable contracts, which significantly contributed to the business development of our clients.

For the next 10 years, VASS Lawyers aims to strengthen the team, to maintain the public procurement field as a pillar for business development, to undertake new projects with major impact on the Romanian society, and also extend the clients portfolio based on common business principles.
