“Sources recommend Latham & Watkins as “'the go-to firm in the market on complex, cross-border transactions, on the Russian and English law side.'”

— Chambers Global 2020


Latham’s Moscow office brings together a leading team of capital markets, M&A, finance, and disputes lawyers qualified to practice Russian, US, and English law.

As an integral part of Latham’s global platform, the Moscow office excels at helping local and international clients with interests in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) navigate cross-border transactions, litigation and arbitration proceedings, financial restructuring transactions, as well as bank and project financings in Russia and the CIS.

Latham’s Russian team is also well-placed to assist with various aspects of clients’ day-to-day operations in Russia. We regularly advise on data privacy, investigations, commercial contracts, real estate, currency control, and other regulatory matters.
