Our Russia lawyers advise clients on some of the most complex, pioneering legal matters in the country. With more than 130 lawyers in our Moscow and St. Petersburg offices, we are the go-to firm for Russia's largest companies and major foreign investors seeking innovative advice on cross-border, multijurisdictional transactions.
Local expertise, global approach
We provide first-class legal and commercial advice to major foreign investors in Russia, including ArcelorMittal, Ford Motor Company and Carlsberg. We also advise some of Russia's largest companies, including Gazprom Neft, Kaspersky Labs, Novatek, Rusnano, VTB, and Power Machines.
Our strength is our ability to combine domestic and international expertise on a single legal team, working with colleagues across our offices in Europe, Asia, and the rest of the world to find the best legal and commercial solutions for our clients.
Law Student Program
Our program is designed to give law students a feel for what it's like to work at Baker & McKenzie by assisting partners on actual cases, receiving professional training and attending Firm networking events. Interns may be offered future employment with the Firm based on their performance.
We are committed to investing in our local communities by providing pro bono services and financial support to causes we believe in. As part of those efforts, we provide free legal advice to organizations including the State Hermitage Museum, American Chamber of Commerce, Russo-British Chamber of Commerce and the International Business Leaders Forum.
We recently assisted YUM! Restaurants International with establishing a Russian charity fund for socially vulnerable children by advising on the structuring of the charity fund, preparing documentation and getting approvals from state authorities. We also support Downside Up, a Russian non-profit that supports parents raising children with Down syndrome, and participate in annual futsal tournaments and ski competitions organized by Charity Sports to raise money for programs for children with Down syndrome.
