The core of the firm is formed by a well-established Russian team with exceptional local law capabilities, extensive knowledge of the local markets and over 15-years' practical experience.
Today, with a team of over 90 Russian and English-qualified lawyers based in Moscow, Goltsblat BLP is one of the biggest international law firms in Russia/CIS.
