Who we are
We specialise in the Russian capital markets, project finance, PPP and project management in these areas.
Who we are
  • We are specifically recognized for our work at the intersection of law and finance. We believe that one is meaningless without the other, and vice versa. For instance, in project finance and PPP, we provide financial modelling of the project, based on our significant experience in implementing tariff projects.
  • We use design thinking in drafting texts, documents, and presentations.
  • We love the scientific approach and fundamental research.
  • The human environment is important to us — both within the team and around it. We prioritize human-centred projects with maximum social value, combined with the personal development of our team members.
  • We monitor market developments, analyze them, and help build up the internal financial markets system to meet the highest expectations and demands: work out the “game rules” for innovative products, raise quality standards, and establish a dialogue between market participants. We love to anticipate events and create trends, and we are not afraid to take on the responsibility of being a pioneer. We invest our time in ideas before they become products.
