Our primary practice area is advising companies on mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, corporate reorganizations, commercial transactions, e-commerce and other corporate matters. Our clients include multinational corporations, Russian privately held companies, private equity firms, financial institutions and high net worth individuals. We have advised on corporate transactions having a combined value in excess of US$15 billion since the firm launched in 2014.

We bring together superb lawyers with international law firm backgrounds within a small firm environment, where we can offer a level of service comparable to an international firm but at competitive fees. The majority of our lawyers are qualified in multiple jurisdictions, making us a popular choice for cross-border assignments. We work closely and have strong relationships with leading law firms in the main global financial centres (in particular, the Asian hubs of Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore).

We are able to advise and assist on the wide spectrum of issues encountered in a corporate transaction – from deal structuring, drafting and negotiating transaction documents, legal support in raising finance to obtaining antimonopoly and governmental permissions and assisting with deal closing. We help clients with the incorporation of companies, capital increases, share issues and, at the other end of the spectrum, bankruptcy proceedings.
