Practice notes

Oxana Peters is a partner in our Litigation and Dispute Management practice group based in Moscow. Her practice encompasses a broad range of litigation for national and global clients, which in recent years has included commercial, construction, corporate, tax, and securities litigation, and arbitration (both domestic and international), including recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral awards.

Oxana has been recommended by The Legal 500, Chambers and Partners, and Best Lawyers for her work in dispute resolution since 2009. She is a “top-ranked” Russian attorney-at-law with over 20 years' experience and “exceptional litigation and arbitration expertise.”

  • won a case for a major Russian bank against a mala fide creditor in relation to security and settlement agreements
  • represented a Russian investment company in a dispute regarding securities
