In 1990, Mannheimer Swartling became the very first European law firm to open an office in what was then the Soviet Union. Today, we remain the oldest non-Russian law firm in Moscow. The practice initially focused on litigation and arbitration, but soon expanded to cover most areas of business law.
Our Moscow office employs both Russian and Swedish lawyers. As in all of our offices, the practice is fully integrated with the rest of the firm, meaning each client has access to the collective expertise and experience of the whole firm.
We know the Russian market
Our lawyers in Moscow have extensive knowledge of the Russian market and business climate. Clients typically include medium-sized and large enterprises and banks and investors based in the Nordics and northern Europe, along with their Russian subsidiaries. The team also handles commercial dispute resolution, working particularly with Russia-related disputes settled by arbitration at the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce.
