Our Moscow office includes more than 40 lawyers and staff who have been working together for many years. Our lawyers are well known in the Russian market, and have deep familiarity with the local legislation, practices, and key players.
We provide a full-service business practice for international and Russian clients, including advice on corporate, finance, M&A, transactional finance, litigation and international arbitration, energy and natural resources projects, real estate property transactions, labor and employment issues, immigration, and a wide range of regulatory matters.
In addition to providing advice focused on Russia, the team represents clients in the entire region encompassing Russia, Kazakhstan (working with our colleagues in Almaty and Astana), and the other countries of the former Soviet Union, including Central Asia and the Caspian.
We are particularly adept at advising our clients about compliance and sanction matters. We guide them on intellectual property (including anti-piracy) matters, international and domestic litigation and arbitration, and a wide range of other issues under Russian and foreign civil and commercial laws. Our capabilities also cover compliance matters, including corporate governance, disclosure, anticorruption, and anti-money-laundering.
In addition, the Moscow office has experience across a wide number of industry sectors, including commercial property and infrastructure development, energy and natural resources, financial services and securities markets, life sciences, manufacturing, telecommunications, media and technology, retail, and transportation. We also offer our clients in Russia full access to the global capabilities of Morgan Lewis.
