Chambers Europe Awards for Excellence 2012: EPAM is the Best National Law Firm of the Year in Russia

EPAM has won the prestigious Chambers Europe Awards for Excellence 2012 for a second year in a row in the category National Law Firm of the Year in Russia.

Every year Chambers Europe Awards for Excellence reflect success of law firms from all over the world. The results are based on such criteria as outstanding achievements, notable projects, impressive developments, strategic growth as well as the level of the client service.

The award ceremony took place on May 10, 2012 in Amsterdam’s Hotel Okura and was hosted by Chambers Europe editor Joanna Thomas.

In 2008 EPA&P has become the first Russian law firm to have win Chambers Europe Awards for Excellence, and in 2011 the Firm has been named best of the best again. Noteworthy that EPAM has been shortlisted for this prestigious award for six year running.

Ilya Nikiforov, Managing Partner of Saint Petersburg office of EPA&P who represented the Firm at the ceremony this year, says: «We are honored to have become the winner of this authoritative award again. Last year was very important for the Firm. We not only continued to work on a number of outstanding projects, EPA&P also strengthened its positions significantly due to the mergers with two key Russian players to become the largest law firm in the CIS. This is the real milestone. We have become stronger to further improve Russia’s legal culture and develop local legal market in Russia and across the CIS».
