The Real Estate and Construction Practice retains leading positions in Russia and internationally, as shown by the Chambers and Legal 500 ratings in recent years. The Banking and Finance Practice is developing rapidly and we note, in particular, clients’ growing interest in our services in South-east Asia and China, where we are currently implementing a number of projects together with the BLP offices in Hong-Kong, Beijing, Singapore and Yangon.
We are convinced that, with our Moscow office team of 100 Russian and English law qualified lawyers and over 800 lawyers in the firm’s other offices round the world in London, Abu-Dhabi, Beijing , Berlin, Brussels, Dubai, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Paris, Singapore, Tel Aviv and Yangon, we are very well positioned to provide comprehensive legal support and service excellence to Russian and international clients in addressing their business challenges both in Russia and abroad.
We are grateful for the trust and support shown us by our clients, both those who have been with us from the start and those who have only joined us recently, and will continue in our endeavor to meet their requirements and expectations to the maximum, helping them implement new projects in Russia and elsewhere, and moving forward together towards new horizons and achievements.
