ALRUD has a very strong team of professionals with an excellent reputation and I am extremely pleased to be joining the firm during an exciting period of its growth. It is a great opportunity to further develop a dedicated finance practice that fits perfectly with the other practices of the firm. The legal services marketplace in Russia has been transforming and I am confident that ALRUD is the right platform to serve my clients in an environment where international law firms are not always competitive for different reasons or at times are not allowed to act for some clients as a result of sanctions, Alexander Rymko commented.
