Having been working in Russia for nearly 20 years, we advise Russian and foreign companies from different industry sectors, including mining, on all legal and tax aspects of the proposed projects. When sector-specific advice is required, we call on support of our industry specialists, including our experts in Infrastructure and Project Finance group.

We advise on:

  • All regulatory aspects of projects involving natural resources and strategic industries
  • Project finance
  • Comprehensive, Abbreviated or ‘Red Flag’ Due Diligence to suit the case
  • Construction and development
  • Joint ventures and shareholders agreements
  • Obtaining approvals and permissions from regulatory bodies (Federal Antimonopoly Service, strategic industries, CBR etc.)
  • Corporate conflict resolution
