The M&A and corporate department at Borenius is led by Alexey Nikitin, who works closely with associate Artyom Berlin. The team attracts mandates from clients active in the oil and gas, property development and private equity sectors, and is also regularly instructed to act as local counsel on high-value multijurisdictional M&A transactions. The group also provides an increasing amount of sanctions-related advice; its sanctions expertise was strengthened in 2019 by the arrival of Artem Zhavoronkov from Dentons. Managing partner Andrei Gusev is also key name to note and handles strategic boardroom issues, cross-border M&A, structuring work and tax planning matters as well as white-collar crime cases.
‘A diligent and reactive team which delivers legal advice to the point and does so in a timely manner.‘
‘The team provides pragmatic, practical and clear advice whilst explaining the Russian legal framework and the requirements applicable locally.‘
‘The team is able to work to tight deadlines and provide practical solutions even when matters do not initially go according to plan.‘
‘Alexey Nikitin and associate Artyom Berlin understand our issues, explain clearly what may be required from a Russian legal perspective, and make a deal happen when other lawyers have proven unable to do so.‘
