Mannheimer Swartling has a long history in Russia. The firm opened its first Russian office as early as 1990 and was the first European law firm in what was then the Soviet Union. The firm's Russian practice was initially focused on litigation and arbitration although they currently extend to all areas of business law, with a particular focus on M&A and corporate, banking and finance, real estate, competition, and litigation and arbitration.
The firm's Russian practice is currently conducted from the full-service office in Moscow, and employs Russian, Swedish and German lawyers. The Russian practice is fully integrated in the firm and benefits from the entire firm's experience and expertise.
In addition to its long history in Russia, Mannheimer Swartling has a thorough understanding of the Russian legal market and business environment and can thus offer clients high quality legal advice in large transactions.
