“Great commitment. The quality of the advice was at the level of the leading international law firms,” says one investment fund client. IFLR1000
"We were very happy to have them on the transaction. It was very complex, very difficult and had all the difficulties you can imagine, but we were very impressed with how they coped. Unlike most of the Russian firms, they are very responsive and available literally 24/7. The second thing – and this is not surprising, but we were glad – was that they really understand the oil business. Not many firms actually do and we have lots of specifics, but they did know how this matter should have been done, which helped us a lot when drafting the documentation". Chambers Europe
