Research period review: 30th edition (2019/2020)

The corporate team was busy with buy-side roles on acquisitions, market entry advice and entity establishment. An interesting deal saw the firm assist a foreign client with entering the Russian market to build a chemicals plant.

On the restructuring side, the firm was notably active on the bankruptcy proceedings of a real estate developer.

The firm was hit by the departure of managing partner Inna Vavilova, who left the legal business.
