Our infrastructure team won this prestigious Russian infrastructure award for the second time in three years. 

The award ceremony took place at the Annual Russian Investment Forum in Sochi on 15th February 2018. The Forum is a traditional platform for showcasing Russia’s investment and economic opportunities, organised by the Government of the Russian Federation.  The infrastructure panel was led by Maksim Oreshkin, the Minister for Economic Development, and was attended by Dmitry Medvedev, the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation and Maksim Sokolov, the Minister for Transport.

The ROSINFRA infrastructure awards are unique in Russia, which brings together key market players from among investors, governmental authorities, financial bodies and consulting firms. The Awards recognise the best infrastructure projects in different sectors, including transport, social, utilities, energy and telecommunications. Other nominations include the best infrastructure investor, grantor, bank, law firm, financial advisor and technical advisor across Russia.

The award is particularly valuable to us given it is based on the feedback from the professional infrastructure community and the clients.

Olga Revzina, Regional partner for Infrastructure/Europe, said: “ROSINFRA award follows our success at The Lawyer European Awards 2017 where we were named European Energy and Infrastructure Deal of the Year for Moscow's Central Ring Road, section 3. The awards provide a great endorsement from the market and highlight our ability to constantly meet clients' high expectations and demands".

Alexei Roudiak, managing partner of the Moscow office, commented: "I would like to thank our Moscow infrastructure and PPP team for their enthusiasm and enormous efforts made to maintain our leading position in Russia particularly in the current climate. The team has an incredible pool of clients that it keeps advising on the most innovative and high-profile infrastructure projects in the emerging markets."
