Legal support for business

Belskiy and Partners' main area of expertise is trial advocacy. Our lawyers are regularly engaged in corporate disputes, litigation, and criminal defense. We know exactly how laws work in practice, and which contractual terms determine the outcome of legal battles.

Our interdisciplinary approach to legal support for businesses combines our lawyers' and attorneys' expertise with an understanding of the structure of the Russian legal system and the latest developments within it. Our clients receive relevant advice that enables them to avoid dangerous mistakes.

Our specialist lawyers provide a second opinion during legal audits of important contracts and transactions, and in the development of strategies and legislative initiatives. This is a key concern for in-house legal departments in large companies and clients working with consultants who do not have litigation experience.
We advise businesses on issues such as:
  • Criminal defense.
  • Legal representation of business interests before government authorities during inspections and administrative investigations and procedures.
  • Drafting contracts and agreements.
  • Customs and tax administration.
  • Due diligence of transactions, strategies, and legislative initiatives.
  • Management action plans for crises and specific situations.
