Our practice offers extensive industry experience in matters of international trade, regulatory compliance and security. The firm combines deep talent and experience, with global international presence through a network of counsel and advisors worldwide, to offer multinational companies and business people assistance in handling global business activities efficiently and cost effectively. We regularly collaborate with contacts that are former and current prosecutors, investigators, journalists, police officers and international trade law specialists to offer optimum solutions and strategic counseling to our clients.

We counsel clients globally regarding the application of U.S. and non-U.S. trade laws in a variety of contexts, including mergers and acquisitions, bankruptcy issues, intellectual property and technology transfers, national security and classified environments, and investigations and enforcement actions. The firm not only helps resolve legal issues, but also helps clients consider, analyze and manage the political, reputational, and public considerations that can accompany high-stakes international business.

The firm has experience counseling clients in connection with defending against potential and real criminal charges, compliance, sanctions, civil litigation risk, investigations, and nuanced political considerations. We also have extensive experience in international business transactions, including international real estate assets, structuring multi-national corporations, cross-border investments, and securities regulations, as well as existing compliance requirements for cryptocurrency, digital assets and blockchain-based businesses.

Our counsel is fluent in Russian and has particular expertise in matters involving high net worth individuals and companies from Russia, CIS Republics and the United Kingdom, as well as other countries. We work closely with other lawyers domiciled in Moscow, Kiev and London.
