Pepeliaev Group is distinguished by its highly specialised team, which comprises a large number of experts. Managing partner Sergey Pepeliaev brings a wealth of experience in handling contentious and advisory taxation issues to the group, as does Rustem Ahmetshin, who heads up the tax practice. For family and inheritance law mandates, Julia Borozdna and Olga Puchkova are the names to note. On the litigious side, the key contacts are Yuri Vorobyev and Yulia Litovtseva; the latter is particularly active in bankruptcy proceedings and is frequently appointed as a mediator at both the pre-trial and trial stages.
Pepeliaev Group is increasingly being instructed in relation to defamation disputes. A significant part of the team’s workload also involves contractual and corporate disputes; Roman Bevzenko is among the key contacts. Dispute resolution group leader Yuri Vorobyev has extensive experience acting on the defence side of Russian and international companies in commercial disputes. Ekaterina Lebedeva leads the international litigation practice.
