The Firm

Swiss Legal Services in Russia – Welcome to our Website

Opened in 1992 our Moscow office looks back on twenty years experience in servicing an international clientele. We focus on clients (multinational corporations, banks, SMEs, individuals) rather than particular areas of law. Our expertise in house and our network of correspondents and contacts allow us to achieve results and provide solutions in a timely and cost-efficient manner. Most client matters have an international connotation, and all our team speaks and writes Russian and at least one foreign language fluently. Our participation in international legal networks enables us to provide advice and support to our clients in all major jurisdictions.

Initially a branch of the Geneva law firm Secretan Troyanov, since 2006 independent, we maintain strong ties with Switzerland. Two of our key lawyers have Swiss law degrees (Geneva and Berne) while fluent in Russian and having practiced Russian law for almost twenty years. For Swiss legal matters we can rely on the expertise and network of our Partner firm: ALTENBURGER LTD. legal + tax with its offices in Geneva, Zurich and Lugano. We act as the official counsel of the Swiss Embassy in Moscow. The combination of the Russian and Swiss legal and business culture in our own team makes us experts in helping clients correctly interpret the local business environment.

Our main focus is corporate, contractual, employment and financial law. We accompany firms first entering the Russian market, act as outside counsel, provide advice and legal opinions on specific matters, draft legal documents in the required languages and represent clients in administrative and court proceedings. One of our team focuses on dispute resolution and is admitted as arbitrator for the International Commercial Arbitration Court of the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
