Our Russia/CIS team provides English law advice to businesses and individuals from the region investing in, or doing business with, the UK.
We also advise English businesses on transactions involving Russia and the CIS countries, where these matters require English legal input or are undertaken under English law.
The team brings together lawyers from across our firm and includes a number of fluent Russian speakers, enabling us to provide legal know-how based on a practical understanding of similarities and distinctions in the legal systems and business cultures.
We advise on a wide range of corporate and commercial transactions, real estate transactions, construction and infrastructure projects, dispute resolution and international arbitration matters. We are experienced in fund raisings on capital markets worldwide and transactions in the M&A, investments and private equity fields.
The team handles cases of considerable size and complexity for corporate and individual clients for all forms of commercial dispute resolution, including high court litigation, international and domestic arbitration and mediation. Our lawyers are well-placed to advise on reputation management matters and have been involved in some of the most significant defamation cases in the UK.
In addition, our private capital team assists individuals who, through their wealth or family connections, have links to the UK or who are moving to or from the UK and need advice on wealth planning, tax structuring, immigration (including investor and entrepreneur visas), family and matrimonial matters and high value residential real estate.
