ALRUD Law Firm acts for a growing number of large domestic banks, but also has a strong position internationally – it maintains strong relationships with international firms across Europe, Asia and the US, which results in significant volumes of referral cross-border work. The practice is known for its strength in financial regulation, enhanced by its cooperation with the Russian regulator, the Central Bank of Russia; Anton Dzhuplin is a go-to adviser for issues in this space. Additional areas of expertise include financial restructuring, as well as real estate, mezzanine and trade finance. The team also bolstered its syndicated lending offering with the arrival of practice head Alexander Rymko from Harneys at the beginning of 2020.
