Debevoise’s Infrastructure Team Blends Local Knowledge with International Capabilities to Advise on Major Infrastructure Projects in Russia and the CIS


Debevoise has advised on some of Russia and the CIS’s most complex and high-impact infrastructure projects. The team has a long and successful track record in the sector, especially in transport, mining, and energy-related projects.

The team includes respected Moscow-based lawyers as well as international colleagues, ensuring it delivers clients a blend of local knowledge and a global perspective. The team is further supported by Debevoise’s experience in related areas such as corporate, tax, environmental law, capital markets and dispute resolution, making it a one-stop shop for clients in the sector.

This approach has seen the practice take a leading role in some of the largest infrastructure and project developments in the region, including acting in connection with the construction of a pipeline from Sakhalin Island to China.

This experience further means the team remains at the cutting edge of market developments, retaining a keen eye for the most up-to-date market practices and financing trends in infrastructure projects in every sector.
