We boast the largest M&A and Corporate Practice in the CIS, working as one team together with the Firm's lawyers in tax, antitrust, employment and litigation practices, offering clients comprehensive advice on sophisticated transactions and day-to-day operations.
We are committed to our region and our clients, and whilst the legal capabilities of other international law firms in the region shrink, we continue to invest in our associates at all levels, including education and secondments to leading UK and US firms, as well as make new hires into our market-leading teams.
In 2015 Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev and Partner’s corporate team won the prestigious Corporate Deal of the Year Award at The Lawyer European Awards, competing with the leading UK, US and European firms, which goes to prove our global recognition in the corporate field. We are actively engaged in developing the national law of CIS countries, which means that our advice is at the forefront of any legislative changes that may affect our clients.
Our Firm’s lawyers are co-authors of complete and comprehensive reform of the Russian Civil Code. We have specific know-how in adaptation of concepts of English law to local requirements and their effective subsequent enforcement in the CIS.
