Litigation and dispute resolution is one of the firm’s core practices. Our litigation team represents state bodies, corporate clients and private individuals in state courts as well as in various bodies that have adjudicating powers, such as Federal Services for Intellectual Property Patents and Trademarks or Regional Tax Authorities. We have an outstanding record of handling multimillion litigation projects in corporate and real estate matters in Russia and in foreign jurisdictions, such as England, France and Switzerland. Our lawyers have worked on multinational projects simultaneously involving state court litigations and international commercial arbitrations that covered issues of anti hostile takeover defense, insolvency, asset tracing, serious civil and criminal fraud.

We have proved particularly efficient in working out cross-border strategies for tracing and recovery of assets stripped out from our clients or for wrongs caused to our client by acts of commercial fraud or deceit.
