2017 Issue of Legal 500 EMEA Guide
INTELLECT-S has one of the strongest IP and TMT teams in Russia.
The Legal 500 ranked INTELLECT-S among Russia’s best law firms for the fourth time running in the 2017 issue of its guide.
The Legal 500's team ranks EMEA firms and practitioners on the basis of a thorough global research and reviews across Europe, Middle East and Africa, evaluating the candidates' performance by the complexity of client cases, range of competencies and lawyers' competence levels, based essentially on feedback from clients and peers. Taken together, these performance measurements entitle or disentitle each candidate to the inclusion in the list of the world's best 500 firms in its jurisdiction and industry.
The Legal 500's ranking INTELLECT-S for the fourth time in a row makes quite a tradition. We are recommended again as Russia's third best intellectual property firm in EMEA — as we were in 2014, 2015, and 2016, with two of its members individually mentioned for courtroom advocacy skills and management competence.
Intellect-S maintains 'a high level of communication with the client'. Maxim Labzin is 'a great speaker in court hearings' and has 'a strong background in IP litigation'. Evgeny Shestakov heads the team.
The Legal 500's 2017 issue also ranked INTELLECT-S third best in Telecoms, Media and Technologies.
Intellect-S 'replies promptly and precisely to all questions'. Anastasia Makhneva advises on transactional matters, e-commerce issues and mass media laws, while Maxim Labzin handles IP proceedings and competition disputes.
