Russin & Vecchi’s office in Moscow was opened in 1991, at the very end of the Soviet era, in anticipation of the significant growth of cooperation between Russia and major Western economies at both the government and private business levels, which was expected to be spurred by the opening of the Russian border to foreign investments, liberalization of the Russian economy, establishment of a competitive market and other factors.
The Moscow office was intended to carry on the firm’s tradition, based on long experience, of making legal services available in emerging economies. Russin & Vecchi’s team in Moscow specializes in complex commercial transactions integrating the talents of attorneys trained in both common law and civil law jurisdictions.
Working within a restructured and evolving legal system, the Moscow office seeks to achieve client goals by offering sensible advice and practical, workable solutions. The firm’s lawyers are trained to give maximum priority to promptly responding to client communications.
