The Legal 500 EMEA 2016 Continues to Recommend Lidings Among the Top Advisor in Russia

A new ranking for the world’s best law firms and individual lawyers annually provided by The Legal 500 EMEA continues to rank Lidings among the strongest legal advisors in corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, real estate and construction, and dispute resolution in Russia.

Having a high record of successfully conducting precedent-setting cases involving large Russian and international financial institutions, industrial and energy companies Lidings is consistent in demonstrating excellent dispute resolution capabilities traditionally recognized by The Legal 500 EMEA and praised by clients and partner firms. Thus, the newly released rating states that the firm’s Dispute Resolution Practice team headed by Partner Andrey Zelenin “approaches each client individually” also highlighting the team’s experience as: “recently represented Vici Group in a dispute regarding property deprivation, related to a decision by the Russian tax authorities to impose a significant fine”.

The firm’s Real Estate Practice co-headed by Partners Tatiana Bicheva and Sergey Patrakeev is also traditionally highly praised. The directory particularly distinguishes the team’s ability to provide “quick and professional support to clients”, and “an individual approach, which is vital for foreign companies”. The new rating highlights the firm’s experience, stating: “the firm is advising Agrowill Group on the sale of a Crimea-based company which holds titles to farmland”.

For over three decades The Legal 500 conducts a study of the legal services markets in over a hundred countries worldwide. Its impeccable reputation and its recognition by professional community derive from the complexity of selection procedure which includes a comprehensive study of each candidate and a thorough analysis of the quality of their services. When putting together the ranking the agency takes into consideration not only the customer reviews, but the opinions expressed by representatives of competing firms. It is the combination of these factors that creates the impeccable reputation of the directory of the market.
