Pravo.ru – 300: Lidings Among TOP-3 Russia’s Best Law Firms in Terms of Revenue Per Lawyer Taking Leading Positions in Key Practice Areas and Financial Performance

Lidings takes a leading position in the rating of the legal advisors in Russia based on the analytical research by the Pravo.ru-300 annually reflecting on the latest tendencies in the country’s legal market, highlighting the key players’ achievements based on their practical expertise and financial performance.

Having an outstanding record of successfully conducting complex and commercially important projects for our clients during the analyzed period (October 2015 – October 2016), Lidings was ranked among the top Russian and international legal advisors in key practice areas: Arbitration (Band 2), Criminal Defense (Band 2), Intellectual Property (Band 3), Employment (Band 3), Banking and Finance (Band 3), Corporate and Bankruptcy (Band 3).

In addition to receiving a high appraisal for its practical expertise the firm has made it into the list of the TOP-3 companies in terms of revenue per lawyer among advisors with 30 or less lawyers.

Lidings’ Managing Partner Andrey Zelenin explains:  “From the firm’s establishment we still keep our focus on advising foreign businesses in Russia. Over 50% of our earnings are generated in foreign currency thanks to payments remitted from abroad and current exchange-rate differential enables us to substantially build up our ruble-denominated financial assets. Obviously it has affected the rating’s results and encouraged new investment projects in general this year. For example the launch of an investment fund by Lidings’ Senior Partner Sergey Aksenov”.

“This is a quite natural trend. The goals we set have been achieved – it is both a strong financial performance per each lawyer and total- revenue. So, I am once again is happy to see Lidings on top of the list of the best legal advisors in Russia. Of course this is a joint success of every member of our team. Congratulations and I wish further professional accomplishments to all of us”, - adds Sergey Aksenov.

Lidings, as well as its lawyers getting an individual recognition, is annually recommended by all key international legal directories. The firm’s reputation for excellence is evidenced by high ranking positions in Chambers Global, Chambers Europe, The Legal 500 EMEA, IFLR1000 and Who is Who Legal.
