Dispute Resolution

Dispute Resolution

We have a strong dispute resolution practice dealing with cases involving Russian and other CIS clients.

Working in teams with litigation and arbitration practitioners

Our cutting edge expertise in Russian law and our unique geographical position allows us to co-manage and co-run complex litigation and arbitration proceedings involving matters of Russian law and jurisdiction in the UK and other countries.

We provide an opportunity for leading law firms in London, covering Russia without a physical presence in the jurisdiction, to match their dispute resolution offering to Russian and CIS clients or their counterparts with the level of service provided by international law firms with Moscow offices. The law firms we work with are also able to differentiate this offering since our Russian law specialists are based in London, something international law firms with Moscow offices rarely have and or are precluded from having for regulatory reasons.

Our key work in this area consists of coordinating the global strategy of the Russian aspect of a particular case; preparation of legal opinions on matters of Russian law; ‘bridging’ communication with Russian clients and their in-house legal teams; and running enforcement proceedings in Russia

Expert opinions on foreign (Russian) law

Expert work for various cases heard in courts in the UK and offshore dispute resolution centres is at the heart of our dispute resolution practice in London.

Our Russian law specialists are selected for the rare combination of their in-depth knowledge of Russian law and solid understanding of English law. Leading lawyers in our dispute resolution practice have studied English law in the UK (LLM, GDL and or LPC) or qualified as solicitors in England and Wales. They are able to convey Russian legal concepts in practical and clear language easily understandable by solicitors and other practitioners.

We understand our duties as experts to the court and are able to assist the most experienced litigation and arbitration teams of professionals looking for reputable expert witnesses on matters of Russian law.

Proceedings in Russia

We advise UK-based and international clients on disputes relating to Russian law. Our Moscow based team of experienced litigators represents the firm’s clients in Russian courts, before Russian state authorities and in proceedings where offers to settle are made and negotiated by the parties
