Investment projects

The diverse experience of our team allows us to assist clients with all aspects of investment projects in Russia and abroad.
We negotiate and devise tax and corporate structures and transaction financing schemes, as well as advise on antitrust, anticorruption, environmental and urban planning and other regulatory requirements. We assist our clients with rental contracts, real estate purchases and construction contracts, and we conduct legal due diligence of assets and counterparties.

All lawyers in our team speak English fluently. Many of them have worked in international law firms, and some are admitted to practice in other jurisdictions. This enables us to advise not only on investment projects in Russia, but also abroad. We have established working relationships with local counsel in countries where Russian companies often do business, and are well placed to recommend reliable consultants and coordinate their work.
