Lidings Further Strengthens Dispute Resolution Practice with the Appointment of New Partner

Lidings is pleased to announce the appointment of Sergey Kislov as partner within the Dispute Resolution practice of the firm’s Moscow office. Sergey has extensive experience in bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings, as well as advising clients on corporate conflict prevention, business restructuring and sales of distressed asset. His professional portfolio boasts over 150 successful cases in arbitrazh courts and courts of general jurisdiction. He will become the third partner in Dispute Resolution, one the firm’s key practice areas.
Sergey Kislov joined Lidings in December 2012. Prior to this Mr. Kislov worked as a senior associate at Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners Law Offices, head of legal department at a leading manufacturing company, and legal advisor for a major Russian manufacturing holding.
Sergey’s experience includes defending the investor (asset value in excess of RUR20 bln.) from a hostile takeover by the state in the process of construction of a multifunctional complex in Moscow; representing a global industrial enterprise in arbitrazh courts in numerous debt recovery proceedings (total value c. RUR1bln.) and courts of general jurisdiction in the fight against recognition of disposal of a large land plot; representing clients in multiple trademark litigations and domain litigations in Russia. Sergey participated in a number of precedent-setting projects, such as a claim against the Government of the Russian Federation to recover restructured debt of the former USSR.
Sergey Kislov holds Мaster of Law degree from the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia. He authored multiple articles on corporate law and dispute resolution, and frequently acts as expert at key legal events in Russia and abroad.
“Sergey’s professional expertise becomes particularly invaluable today, during the period of active growth in the number of bankruptcy projects handled by the firm. Sergey has already made a significant contribution to the development of practice since he joined us – clients value his extensive practical experience and his hands-on, commercially-oriented approach to strategic legal defense structuring”, commented Andrey Zelenin, Head of Dispute Resolution practice at Lidings.
