Debevoise’s Russia Team Advises Clients on Real Estate Acquisitions and Investments, From the Straightforward to the Complex


The team has particular strength in creative thinking, using its long experience of the real estate market in the region to develop practical solutions tailored to the situation at hand. Where standard structures and straightforward advice is needed, that’s what the team delivers. But where a transaction takes a client into new territory, or raises new issues, the team has a proven track record in creating innovative solutions grounded in its deep understanding of the market and real estate law.

Through this approach, the team advises clients in buying, selling, financing, leasing and developing all types and classes of real estate.

The team is part of an international real estate practice, and draws on leading lawyers in a range of disciplines. Such reach and depth allows the practice to advise clients on the full spectrum of real estate matters. These include project structuring and tendering, drafting and negotiating agreements with contractors, advising on the legal aspects of design and construction, related claims and arbitrations, negotiating agreements with banks and creditors, restructuring, and acquisitions of companies and assets.

The team continues to draw praise from the major legal directories, with The Legal 500 listing it as a leading practice in the region, quoting sources as saying “the level of service is excellent” and “advice is provided promptly and can be readily understood and acted upon.”
