Global Corporate Law Birmingham

Advising Russian organisations around the world

Global expansion is high on the agenda of many Russian corporations and financial institutions. Eversheds Sutherland is uniquely well-placed to help Russian organisations operate internationally. We advise globally on subjects as diverse as corporate law and M&A, competition, corporate crime & investigations, energy and infrastructure, entity management, financial services, insurance, real estate and tax.

Our clients benefit from our unique ability to combine local relationship management and truly global capabilities. Our Moscow and St Petersburg offices work seamlessly with more than 60 Eversheds Sutherland offices in more than 30 different countries. We advise clients in established regional hubs like New York, Dubai and Johannesburg, as well as in jurisdictions that are significant in their own right like China and Iraq (where we are the only international law firm to have offices).

Representative tasks acting for clients from Russia and the CIS operating internationally have included advising:

  • an industrial company on the establishment of a subsidiary in China.
  • a major Russian energy company on its activities in Iraq.
  • a state-owned company on an intergovernmental project in Africa.
  • a conglomerate on how to acquire and develop real estate in Estonia.
  • numerous Russian companies on litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution in foreign courts and forums.
