The Moscow office of CMS to continue as an independent law firm


Dear Friends

We have been through a lot during 30 years in Russia. Now a difficult decision has been taken by CMS to leave the Russian market. We are grateful to our international colleagues for their experience, support, exciting projects, and friendship.

In the current circumstances our decision was easy and the only right one – we stay in Russia, we stay with you. We are in discussions with CMS about the transition. Our new identity will be revealed later.

Over 80 colleagues of the Moscow office continue working. We are proud of having been able to create and preserve a united team with a friendly corporate culture and responsible attitude to our business.

During these challenging times we are in constant contact with our international and Russian clients and will continue supporting them on all issues during the transition period and beyond. We lean on 30 years of expertise and an impeccable reputation as part of an international law firm. We have always abided by strict professional standards and will continue providing services of the highest quality.

We are responsible for our colleagues, our clients, and our own destiny. We continue working and will always be here for you.
