Lidings: 7 Years of Success

Lidings law firm, a leading legal advisor to foreign businesses in Russia is preparing to celebrate its 7th anniversary with a gala dinner on 26th April. The dinner will take place at “Sixty” – a venue located on the 62nd floor of Federation Tower in the commercial district of Moscow.

Since its establishment in 2006, Lidings has been the leading legal advisor in the market supporting over 350 international companies operating in Russia on a wide range of legal matters across all key practice areas and industry sectors.

“We consider the past year a true milestone in the history of the firm”, comments Managing Partner Sergey Aksenov. “Our client list has been bolstered with the addition of key international companies, and Lidings has further strengthened its industrial specialization. We occupy top market segment in Russia as legal advisor to pharmaceutical companies and act as sponsor and partner of key industry events in that sector. Our other flagship area of expertise – advising the automotive sector – has also been rapidly evolving throughout the year. The firm became the advisor of choice for a number of major international auto manufacturers entering the Russian market, and we are actively developing cooperation with the Asia-Pacific region and partner firms in Great Britain and the U.S.”.

Practice growth and enhancement of the firm’s industrial focus is accompanied with positive dynamics in other important indicators: the headcount has increased by circa 30%, and the firm’s partnership has welcomed two new members. The annual turnover has tripled in comparison with 2011, while profitability index amounted to an impressive 45%.

Lidings has been endorsed by and improved its ranking positions in all global legal directories, testifying to the growing recognition by the professional community.

In mid-April the firm’s Moscow office has significantly enhanced its working infrastructure announcing relocation to the new offices based at the so-called Moskva-Citi – a brand new commercial district in the Western part of the Russian capital.

“Since its establishment the firm is committed to the highest quality standards. In anticipation of our seventh anniversary I would like to thank our clients and partners for the trust they place in us by choosing Lidings as their Russian advisor”, Sergey Aksenov commented.

“We consider our success as evidence of the right vector of development, sound strategic decisions of the partnership, and excellent work of our team where the contribution of each individual is valued the most. I would like to that our staff and highlight that Lidings’ partnership is open for the admission of new members, and our dynamic practice growth guarantees excellent career opportunities to talented and ambitious employees”.
