| Services

An end-to-end expert in all legal issues is a myth. Only the in-depth study of certain areas of law
and the regular application of the acquired knowledge is what makes a lawyer a real expert.

Our members provide legal services in several key areas where they have become experts
with long-standing legal practice.
Debt Recovery in Russia & Worldwide
Our lawyers implement debt recovery projects, develop a recovery strategy, gather the required evidence, and deter unlawful actions by opponents involving non-legal methods of dispute resolution. In addition, our portfolio includes cross-border debt recovery projects in multi-jurisdictional litigation and arbitration, involving detectives, fraud detection experts and other specialists.
Corporate Conflicts & Commercial Disputes
Our lawyers will help resolve conflicts of any complexity and degree of development. Even in severe conflicts between business owners, shareholders, or company managers, we find the best solution to serve interests of all parties in the shortest possible time with the least losses for our clients and their businesses.
Defense from Hostile Acquisitions & Unconscientious Claims
Our lawyers will help protect a business from seizure, unreasonable demands and claims that can lead to loss of control, causing material losses to a business or its owners.
Defense from Unlawful Criminal Prosecution
Our lawyers have successful experience in defending unjustifiably persecuted entrepreneurs, including in high-profile conflicts involving wealthy entrepreneurs and large corporations.
Bankruptcy & Asset Restructuring
Our lawyers will comprehensively protect the interests of injured creditors or unreasonably prosecuted debtors in bankruptcy proceedings. We will help market participants interested in acquiring businesses and other assets encumbered by bankruptcy to restructure their assets, clear them of encumbrances and ensure their transfer to the ownership of the client.
Inheritance structuring and protection of heirs
Even with the presence of properly executed inheritance relations after the opening of a large inheritance, there is a high probability of unscrupulous persons who challenge the will, the sanctity of the testator, the signatures on the documents, making knowingly unreasonable actions in order to appropriate the inheritance. Our lawyers will help competently structure the inheritance, based on the need for its future protection, and in the case of unreasonable claims to protect the rights of heirs.
Litigation Financing
Our lawyers cooperate closely with A1 Investment Company, the Russia's largest investment fund professionally dealing with litigation financing. These relationships help our lawyers engage partners for partial or full funding of complex international and local cases.
Protection of Business Reputation
Business reputation is one of the most important values of the present-day Russian companies. It is very difficult to build and can be easily ruined by the actions of unscrupulous individuals. Until recently, the business reputation protective mechanisms were ineffective in Russia, but now legislators and courts of all levels provide more and more opportunities in this field. Our lawyers will protect business reputation of their clients by all legal means.
