Lidings Supports “Best Legal Departments in Russia - 2015”

Lidings will support the 10th annual contest “Best Legal Departments in Russia” hosted by Legal Insight magazine, one of the leading publications for law professionals in Russia. Since 2014 the award ceremony of the competition takes place in Saint-Petersburg as part of the International Legal Forum. This year winners in 17 nominations will be announced at a gala dinner at St. Petersburg’s legendary “Palkin” restaurant on the 28th of May 2015.

On the 27th of November 2014 Legal Insight with support from Lidings welcomed all participants in Moscow at a reception devoted to the launch of this year’s contest. Lidings is sponsoring the “Pharmaceuticals” nomination this year, and the firm’s partner Sergey Patrakeev will award the prize to the winner in this category at the ceremony in Saint-Petersburg. Mr. Patrakeev is a seasoned legal advisor to the life sciences sector in Russia renowned by the leading professional rankings. Prominent international directory The Legal 500 EMEA recognizes him as “very knowledgeable in matters relating to the pharmaceuticals industry”.

Since its establishment in 2005 “Best legal Departments” has become one of the most anticipated events of the year for the Russian business community. This year the contest will celebrate its 10th anniversary. The event will traditionally bring together leading business representatives from Russia and the CIS: heads of legal departments of the companies nominated for the award, members of the Expert Council, partners of leading domestic and international law firms, as well as representatives of various state authorities. Deloitte will traditionally act as the event’s official auditors.
