The firm
Kuznetsov, Marisin and partners (KMP) is a Russian litigation law firm focusing on complex disputes in Russia and abroad. Our team works to the highest standards and always fights to the end to protect the client against any opponent and in any political environment.

The partners
Our partners are Ivan Marisin and Vasily Kuznetsov. They are distinguished lawyers who are highly regarded by The Legal 500 and Chambers. Their long-standing dispute resolution experience allows them to develop the most effective strategy for every case and offer the client the best way to resolve the matter.

Areas of practice
Our team successfully represents clients in investor-state disputes, handles complex cases in Russian and foreign state courts and arbitral tribunals, and conducts internal investigations for clients involved in criminal investigations and civil lawsuits.

Complex cross-border disputes are at the core of KMP practice. Our partners have deep experience in handling these disputes in Russia and abroad. These include disputes under the auspices of the the ICAC at the RF CCI, ICC, LCIA, UNCITRAL, ICSID, CIETAC, arbitration centres of Stockholm, Vienna and Warsaw.

Our focus on complex strategy for every case (with unexpected and innovative approaches) allows us not only to win the case, but also to create a favourable procedural and negotiating position for the client and settle the dispute on overwhelmingly favourable terms. Our team has consistently stood out head and shoulders above other practitioners in the Russian legal market. Over the past decade alone, we have secured an enviable suite of landmark victories for our clients.

Zaiwalla & Co

We are delighted to be the co-sponsor of the GC Powerlist: Russia Teams 2018 which recognises and celebrates the hard work and inestimable contribution of in-house teams to the success of their businesses. Congratulations from Zaiwalla & Co to each and every team that has been recognised.

We understand the many pressures within which in-house lawyers work to protect and defend the best interests of their businesses. This is increasingly challenging within an ever changing geo-political environment and regulatory framework.

We are proud of the work we do for our Russian clients, supporting their businesses internationally. Acting for publically-listed companies to private entrepreneurs, this year we have been successfully involved in a variety of high value disputes and transactions involving Russian businesses in the UK, India and the Middle East and we continue to be committed to our Russian clients’ continued success.

Мы искренне поздравляем вас коллеги с таким почетным признанием от Legal 500 и желаем вам успеха и процветания!

The understanding of a business’ cultural practice is very important – the way words are used or the meaning they have can lead to misunderstandings if not understood correctly. The way business is done is different, so understanding that is important for resolving disputes.

Being an “international” firm is not about having a link up with another firm, it is about the skills and mindset of the team. We are truly international in terms of staff, languages, the legal systems we are trained in, and our cultural understanding. We have Russian heritage lawyers and speak a number of languages. Above all, we are a multi-jurisdictional law firm and understand Russian business culture.
