Aim of “VDI Law Firm” is its evolution into a modern law firm, that along with the full legal expertise of its members will fully meet the growing needs and demands of each business activity. Fundamental principle of the firm is to provide high quality legal services as well as innovative and effective solutions. As the world entered a new and more digitalized era, people seek from law firms to be ahead of times, capable of understanding the new needs that may occur and give solutions directly without losing their anthropocentric character. That is something we here in VDI Law Firm always try to embrace. We put people and their needs first. We research in great depth the problems and needs and with our expertise we solve everything in time. We have created a trusted environment for our clients and that is shown in our numerous testimonials. Also, we try to create a trusting and loyal environment for our colleagues too. We are opposed discrimination of any kind, inside and outside of the company. That is something we try to maintain in our recruiting processes as well. We do not care about colour or race, as long as you are as passionate as we are at performing the law and you have demonstrated solid academic credentials. Our wide clientele shows that we do not discriminate clients as well. We take over every company or individual that come to us –if the problem is inside our firm’s capabilities- and we always use our long-term expertise to help. Inclusion is how we unleash the power of diversity. We strive to foster belonging and empowerment inside and outside our workplace.

If a workplace consists of a diverse group of lawyers and staff, then it will be easier to grasp clients’ needs better and provide them with innovative solutions, wherever the client is based. Innovation, motivation, inclusion and trust are some of the core values that our firm always tries to proceed with.
