LANGUAGE DESK

Russian Desk

Our team of six lawyers, led by our Partner Jan Kohout and staffed with native Russian speakers, has extensive knowledge of cross-border transactions and an in-depth understanding of the various legal systems in those countries where Russian is still used as the official or working language. We can also call on the support of as many as 12 Russian-speaking attorneys from different practice areas within the firm. Moreover, we maintain close links with leading local law firms in Russia and other post-Soviet countries.

Our Russian-speaking experts specialise in cross-border projects in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and other states in the region. They have supported a wide range of deals for corporations based in Russian speaking countries, and have also advised Czech and foreign businesses expanding into the CIS.
