Russia and other countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) are sources of significant opportunity for both local and international businesses. To take full advantage of these rapidly growing economies, you need expert local legal advice. Our lawyers have a first-hand understanding of local legal and regulatory systems and a pragmatic approach to commercial solutions.
If your operations in Russia and the CIS are part of an international strategy, our lawyers can provide invaluable legal support across key areas of your business, including multi-jurisdictional transactions, with advice specially adapted to comply with Russian legislation as well as the procedures commonly used in Europe, Asia and the United States.
We understand that to create robust strategies our clients need advice over the long term, covering the myriad of important, everyday issues they face in this market. Our practice in Russia is uniquely multidisciplinary, offering commercial legal solutions combined with a strong tax analysis and planning component.
Your team will comprise local lawyers with experience of supporting local and international clients. This is complemented by several experienced foreign lawyers with US, English, French and German legal training. We also speak your language – in addition to English and Russian, our lawyers speak French, German, Spanish, Italian, Ukrainian, Georgian, Byelorussian, Uzbek and Hebrew.
