What WTR says about Baker McKenzie Russia:
“In Russia, Baker McKenzie flies its flag from two well-established offices in Moscow and St Petersburg, which serve up first-rate filing, licensing and enforcement support, with backup in multi-jurisdictional matters from its sprawling 77-office network. Labelled “the godfather of trademark law” by peers, “creative litigator” Eugene Arievich is a stand-out star: “he’s the most highly regarded IP lawyer in the country.” Denis Khabarov and Margarita Divina complete the market-leading line-up. Khabarov is another enforcement ace and has masterminded scores of anti-counterfeiting campaigns in his time, while Divina is a licensing magus and is “extremely well known for her work in regard to IP contracts” – she has the business nous to deliver the goods time and again.”
