Disputes are our profession. We specialize in complex, high-stakes litigation. Our team has a wealth of expertise in dispute resolution, having won over $ 10 billion in total claims on behalf of our clients. We devise creative solutions in the most complex of cases, and our legal positions often serve as the basis for subsequent legal precedent.
When working on complex cases, we ensure our team includes not only trial lawyers, but also lawyers from related practices, such as criminal law. This allows us to see the big picture and quickly develop an action plan that will lead to a favorable outcome for our client.
Thorough analysis of evidence and frank approach to work.
Belskiy and Partners' dispute resolution lawyers and attorneys attend hundreds of court hearings every year. While we are persistent in achieving our goals, we know that the greatest victory is that which requires no battle. We have successfully resolved many conflicts with a settlement agreement, which has enabled clients to achieve the desired result and save time and money.
When preparing for legal proceedings, we strive to work with our clients as closely as possible, delving into the detail of their business so as to better understand its processes, decision-making mechanisms, and industry specifics. This approach allows us to represent our client’s interests as confidently and convincingly as possible.
Our Dispute Resolution Practice has received numerous awards and has been recognized in leading Russian and international law firm rankings.
Where we work: our lawyers have extensive court experience in every one of Russia’s federal districts, from the Far East to Kaliningrad, and from the Yamal Peninsula to the Caucasus.
