Moscow is a dynamic, significant, ever-changing political and business center—the gateway to the further expanse of Russia leading, since the days of the silk road, into Central Asia and the greater Asian continent, while also looking west to Europe and beyond.
Our Moscow office bridges these divides, offering our clients unique expertise arising from decades of on-the-ground experience in this region together with perspective from numerous global representations and from leading large scale projects. The lawyers in our Russia/CIS practice integrate an understanding of international deal making, politics and cultures with sophisticated legal skills. Our lawyers have a thorough understanding of the specific complexities of business in this part of the world as well as the particular legal issues that face investors from Russia and the CIS as they expand and diversify their investments globally.
