Legal excellence in the CIS

There are many reasons to work with our team in the CIS including:

Leading practitioners – the Eversheds Sutherland CIS Team includes lawyers who are experts in their field and publish regularly on issues in their practice area. The firm and its leading lawyers are respected by clients and peers alike for their expertise and practical advice.

Sector knowledge – we work across a broad range of sectors and disciplines in the CIS including outsourcing, natural resources, banking, finance, employment, real estate, competition, fraud, corruption and data privacy issues across the region.

A leading international law firm – Eversheds Sutherland operates at the leading edge of business. Recognised by Acritas as a Global Elite Law Firm, we regularly advise corporations, financial institutions and states on market-sensitive, high value decisions.

Law without boundaries – investors and business in the CIS often leverage foreign legal systems and offshore structures to reduce risk and resolve disputes. Eversheds Sutherland regularly forms legal teams of experienced lawyers qualified in all the main regional (Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Latvia) and global (England & Wales, Switzerland, Germany, France, Luxembourg) jurisdictions.

Working innovatively – Eversheds Sutherland is a leader in using project management techniques and alternative fee arrangements (including fixed fees where possible) to reduce clients’ risk.

Networked Law – by leveraging its global footprint, Eversheds Sutherland is able to review and prepare large volumes of Russian-language documents in a cost-effective manner and outside the Russian Federation.
