Debevoise combines its in-depth knowledge of the Russian and CIS markets and Russian law with a fully integrated global team to advise financial institutions on a wide variety of matters. These range from complex transactional matters to day-to-day activities.

With particular experience advising banks and insurers, the team in Moscow works closely with colleagues in Europe, the U.S. and Asia to advise a mix of established domestic clients and international financial institutions.

The team focuses on corporate governance matters, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, financial restructurings and project structured financings. It also draws on the firm’s strengths in practice areas such as litigation and compliance to field teams able to advise financial institutions across the full scope of their businesses.
