From 1992 as Russia transitioned to a market economy, we were helping businesses on deals, disputes and projects in Russia, gaining an in-depth understanding of the legal issues that arise. We launched our Russian practice on the ground in Moscow in 1999 to provide full-service Russian, English and US law capability. 

We work with domestic and foreign investors and financial institutions on a range of complex matters across multiple sectors drawing on our multi-jurisdictional network of knowledge and experience to provide a seamless advice for Russian and international clients.

We offer a full service practice with tier one rankings in the leading legal directories for corporate / M&A, private equity, dispute resolution, banking and finance, restructuring and insolvency, PPP and energy.

We pride ourselves on consistently providing the highest quality service to our clients, which has been recognised by the Chambers Europe Awards for Excellence – in particular, our Russian practice was honoured with a Client Service Award in 2015.
