"President Consult" team includes English lawyers that work and live in London on a parity basis. Our company has developed long and close business relations with these lawyers.
When preparing international contracts parties often do not want to specify the arbitration and the applicable law for one of the parties in order to ensure complete impartiality in dispute resolution and exclude possible affiliation (foreign contractors are, particularly, inclined to show concerns over Russian courts). In such cases we recommend English law and London arbitration. We provide full legal support in the preparation of contracts and contract disputes.
English law is used in most transactions that take place in Russia between shareholders and M&A because the result of such transactions is easier to predict and model. We actively assist our clients by implementing English law during transactions between shareholders and Mergers & Acquisition.
