What she specialises in

Elena specialises in dealing with public authorities, providing legal support to clients during state supervisory measures (inspections), handling cases concerning administrative offences, and representing clients in administrative disputes. She has vast experience in resolving disputes out of court and settling conflicts with the administrative authorities as well as in handling all types of administrative cases in Russian courts of different levels.

Her main achievements

Elena’s professional background includes defending clients in more than 300 cases for high-level Russian and international companies.

Her achievements include:

  • successfully litigating for a subsidiary of a major multinational food producer when a winding up petition was presented in relation to it;
  • representing a major car manufacturer when the Federal Treasury carried out an audit to examine whether subsidies it had received from the public purse were justified;
