We provide a full range of legal services for the support of commercial activities, including drafting and examination of contracts, consulting on current business issues, protecting the client’s interests through the duration of transactions, as well as representing the client in contractual disputes.

In our work, we proceed from the premise that the basis of any business is a system of well-structured contracts with counterparties. When preparing a contract that fully meets the client's needs for a particular transaction it is necessary to:

- understand the business model of the client, including its strengths and weaknesses from a legal point of view;

- scrutinize deeply the process the client’s interaction with its counterparty during the contract’s enforcement and foresee probable conflict situations that may arise between the parties;

- develop contractual provisions that will provide maximum protection of the client's interests in the event of a dispute;

- analyze the tax consequences of the contract carefully and determine possible ways of minimizing the tax risks and unjustified tax losses.

Obviously, there is no “standard” template of a contract which can provide for complete solution of abovementioned tasks, even if a preivous contract was used for any other similar transactions.

One shall also consider that, in Russia, Contract law is a constantly developing field of law due to the current major changes in civil legislation and new judicial practice.
