Speaking about his professional incarnations, Ernest Mirchevich puts the word “lawyer” first for a good reason, and only then puts: “The President of the Law Firm, Teacher of Civil and International Private Law”. Mr. Gramatskiy is not a classic type of managing partner of a law firm, who usually deals with purely strategic management, having left legal practice. He does not abandon the current legal context even for a moment, leading the most complex client projects on a daily basis, conducting intensive negotiations in different countries of the world, studying memoranda and voluminous analytics, closing major deals, and personally defending clients of the Firm.

He personally heads the Real Estate and Private Advocacy practices at the Firm, and supervises Construction, Energy and Natural Resources, Media and Advertising industries. He also has extensive and recognized expertise in Business Building practice (Corporate Law, M&A), Business Protection, Taxation, Negotiation and Mediation practices, IT industry, Financial Law. This list least of all describes the universal expertise of the President of the Firm, who personifies his encyclopedic approach to management of professional knowledge and skills at the Firm. To a certain extent, Ernest Mirchevich has something to do with every project supported and closed by the Firm, and it is difficult to name an area or specialization where he would not practice with a high degree of qualification.

The name of Ernest Gramatskiy is widely known far beyond the legal services market; by working closely with clients and partners from different industries and focusing on their industry specifics, E. M. Gramatskiy has gained the reputation of a trusted counselor in real estate, construction and development, trade and retail, financial services, media and advertising, hospitality, energy, and information technologies markets.
