We have attorneys who have been doing Russian business since before Yeltsin, an experienced Russian specialist on staff in Seattle, and an extensive network of associated Russian counsel throughout the Russian Far East and in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
We have worked on countless formations of various entities in Russia (WFOEs, Representative Offices and Joint Ventures), and we understand the pros and the cons of each of them. We also have substantial experience negotiating and drafting technology and service contracts in both Russian and in English, protecting IP in Russia, and resolving disputes with Russian companies. Perhaps most importantly, we can help you conduct due diligence on your Russian business partner.
If you are doing business in Russia or planning to do so, or just doing business with a Russian company, we urge you to contact us so we can help.
