Business Law and Commercial Litigation
The annual Chambers Europe guide named INTELLECT among Russia's most successful legal firms in General Business Law (Band 1), particularly for its high level of representation in the courtroom, IP rights protection, legal support for IT projects, trademark registration, tax, realty, and enforcement (2014-2020).
INTELLECT targets its services at Russian businesses across all sectors, and the firm's team is strongly oriented to the areas of law which govern business. Our lawyers' engagements often involve structuring, perfecting and documenting transactions; conducting due diligence, checks and mock audits to identify potential risks, prosecuting and defending extrajudicial claims, preparing legal opinions and advice on various contractual matters, collecting receivables and enforcing judgments, and representing clients before courts and regulatory bodies.
INTELLECT ranked among Russia's top firms for representation in Arbitrazh Courts (2012-2019).
We represent clients before general jurisdiction courts of law, special jurisdiction arbitrazh (commercial) courts, and arbitral tribunals. Represented by offices strategically located in Moscow, Yekaterinburg, Perm, Nizhny Novgorod and Novosibirsk, INTELLECT's attorneys appear before courts across five vast court districts: Central, Ural, Volga, Volga-Vyatka and West-Siberian. Our lawyers operate with confidence outside their home turfs, e.g. in St. Petersburg, Leningrad Region and elsewhere where their clients' business interest may extend and want legal protection.
Our special highlights include representation in international disputes referred for resolution to the International Commercial Arbitration Court of the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and pleading before the highest courts of Russia, including the Higher Arbitrazh Court (which was made the Economic Division of the Russian Federation Supreme Court in 2014). RAPSI, the information agency of Russia's highest courts, selected one of the cases we tried as one the top ten intellectual right events of the year.
