Corporate Law and Corporate Litigation
INTELLECT ranked among Russia's top firms in prestigious categories: Representation in Arbitrazh Courts (2012-2018); Corporate Law/M&A (2013 and 2016-2017); and Bankruptcy (2014-2015, 2017-2018) in Russia's nationwide rating of law firms.
The ongoing legislative and judicial activism makes present-day Russian statutory and case corporate law an extremely volatile area. As a result, ongoing tracking and following changes in the legal environment is a must.
Over its short history, Russian corporate law has quickly grown from a rudimentary tool governing early partnerings based on shady conventions and hazy understandings, into a complex system of detailed regulation capable of supporting sophisticated corporate constructions based entirely on written law rather than on blurry spoken arrangements.
Co-owning a business with maximum protection for the parties, perfect documentation, irreproachable transparent corporate procedures and fair conflict resolution require a far higher level of legal competence, knowledge and experience than ever before.
