In May 2014

Our company was established in May 2014 after the partners made a decision to leave prominent international law firms and start their own practice, offering fast, high-quality, and competitively-priced services on par with leading global companies. Prior to forming our firm, the partners worked at Allen & Overy, Latham & Watkins, Akin Gump, and other international law firms in Moscow, London, Frankfurt, and various financial centers in the United States.

about the company

The Right Choice

The legal market in Russia is still characterized by a limited selection of independent consultants able to provide a range of top-quality legal services comparable to those offered by the largest international law firms. Our firm was among the first to recognize the trend towards localized high-end services, and time has proven this decision to be both sound and logical. As a result, Danilov & Partners boasts a well-earned reputation and enduring relationships with numerous clients.

What sets us apart from our competitors

Geography of Our Transactions

The geography of firm-serviced deals speaks volumes: Russia, Asia (including the People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Mongolia, and Japan), Africa (including South Africa, Uganda, and Egypt), the Middle East (including the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, and Israel), North America, and Latin America (including Brazil and Ecuador).

Since its founding in 2014, the team at Danilov & Partners has helped clients complete projects totaling over

25 billion
US dollars

Over 25 years of experience

With over twenty-five years of experience in cross-border transactions, we have established strong working relationships with skilled international consultants. Our firm has a developed network of foreign specialists in every continent and in all leading financial centers. We utilize the services of the top local consultants in each jurisdiction, to provide our clients with high-quality service and «one-stop-shop» assistance.


Our Competitive Edge

We focus on clients’ strategic buiness objectives. Our attorneys have received education from top-tier international and Russian universities. For example, our CEO holds a Master of Law degree and studied at the Northwestern School of Law and Kellogg School of Management. Equipped with a comprehensive understanding of Russian accounting regulations, IFRS, US GAAP principles, business strategy, and analytics — along with knowledge of English, US, and Russian law — we offer full-spectrum legal support to our clients. We earned high ratings from Legal500, Chambers & Partners, IRLF 1000, Best Lawyers, and a number of other rating agencies in corporate law and M&A, energy, banking and finance law, and fintech until 2022 (with an interim pause in our participation in global rankings to await the stabilization of geopolitical conditions). We are committed to leveraging our knowledge and experience to benefit our Russian and international clients.
