March 10, 2020

MOSCOW, March 10, 2020: Artem Tamaev, who focuses on mergers and acquisitions, private investment funds, and joint ventures, has joined Morgan Lewis as a partner resident in Moscow. He arrives from Herbert Smith Freehills.

“We are delighted to welcome Artem to Morgan Lewis,” said Firm Chair Jami McKeon. “He serves clients across a range of important sectors and regions, further deepening the bench of our global corporate transactions team to help our clients advance their growth strategies.”

Artem regularly advises clients on complex domestic and cross-border transactions and he has handled deals across numerous jurisdictions, including both in-bound and out-bound Russia matters. He represents private and public companies and private investment funds doing business in a wide array of industries, including agribusiness, consumer products, energy, manufacturing, and pharmaceuticals.

“Artem’s arrival means even greater collaboration among the lawyers in our robust European and global cross-border corporate practice,” said Steve Browne, leader of Morgan Lewis’s corporate and business transactions practice. “Our London and Moscow teams already work together closely on deals across industries and borders, and Artem adds increased strength to those services for our clients.”

Morgan Lewis has continued to focus on strategic markets around the world and recently grew its global corporate practice with the arrival of energy and infrastructure partners Jennifer Josefson in Moscow, Chadi Salloum in Dubai, and Ayesha Waheed in London.

“The addition of Artem to our Moscow office brings an exciting opportunity for our team to further build on our work with Russian corporate clients and those from further afield looking to invest in Russia,” said Vasilisa Strizh, managing partner of Morgan Lewis’s Moscow office.
