Mitigation of the impact of COVID-19 and of Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine

Risk minimization and business restructuring during crisis

We help companies quickly and efficiently adapt to economic and political changes. We ensure legal and economic security of the companies and their key executives in crisis times.

Defense against criminal prosecution by the Secret Services

Stress and impossibility to monitor legislative changes lead to the criminal prosecution and as a result constraints on business activities. We help get out of the crisis with minimum losses.

Legal protection of your assets and support in effecting payments

Changes in the economic sector lead to difficulties in work with foreign partners. We help companies recalibrate timely their strategy in compliance with sanctions, and maintain their positions in business.

You should not take a wait-and-see approach during a crisis. Send a request if you seek timely and professional solutions to your problem.

Three peculiarities of work in a crisis

New strategies

The legislation is changing and you cannot rely on the successful practice of the previous years any more. Thus, it’s better to appeal to specialists who can think ‘outside the box’, can push the boundaries and develop defense strategies with personal approach.

Umbrella approach

When in a crisis, you should not count on the only solution or measure. It’s of vital importance to develop more strategies to get ready for different scenarios and changes in legislation, politics and economics.

Readiness for the new

Our lawyers have to regularly meet new challenges and non-standard requests in the course of crisis. Our experts are eager to pursue new challenges and come up with effective strategies for our clients’ defense.

Why can most of lawyers not work effectively in times of a crisis?

Reluctance to take the first step

Crises and legislative changes force to act not relying on long-term experience but to seek for new solutions. Our experts go forward and help their clients meet challenges and achieve goals.

Reluctance to get involved in disputes with public authorities

Our experts have a rich experience of defending clients against illegal actions of Russian state bodies and secret services. We do not work against anybody but we do stand up for justice and our clients’ interests, so we never step back faced with complicated cases.

Lack of personal experience of getting out of crises

Our team has been operating in the market for 15 years and we have not only experience of dealing with crises but of active growth in such periods. We can discern good opportunities for our own development and, thus, find such opportunities for clients.
