Regulatory issues and interaction with state bodies
The basis of successful big business in Russia is understanding the decision-making process of the authorities. Unlike many western jurisdictions, it is sometimes difficult for investors to understand Russia’s public administration system because of its multiple layers and seeming unpredictability. This often leads to a sub-optimal approach in dealing with public authorities, which in the long run can seriously damage business.

Our practice specializes in consulting on issues of interaction with authorities, development and implementation of a comprehensive and far-sighted strategy of building relations, both at the legislative level and at the level of executive agencies.

The uniqueness of our GR practice lies not only in its high efficiency. As a trusted advisor to some of the world’s largest corporations, we understand the importance of not creating new problems for our customers by addressing existing ones. Therefore, it is very important for us to be able to provide legal advice that is not only effective but complies with the highest ethical standards applicable to our clients.

Working on the side of borrowers, we advise Russian and foreign corporations that represent various industries. Among the financial transactions that we have helped our clients to conclude, there are the largest loans on the market of commercial debt financing in the Far East region.

Our practice is especially focused on project financing. Our lawyers work with clients from the beginning of the project to its completion.
