Sirota & Partners > Firm Profile
Sirota & Partners law firm was founded in 2003 in Moscow by Artem Sirota, who had previously gained experience at international law firms. From the very beginning, the firm has focused on consulting and representing foreign investors, primarily from Germany and the rest of Europe. Feedback from the first projects showed that prominent foreign construction firms, design companies and developers operating on the Russian market approached the firm, thus establishing real estate and construction as the main focus of its practice. Following the progress of the work, sophisticated international companies and developers started to entrust their projects to the firm, building long-term relationships. For instance, it has been providing comprehensive legal support on various issues to an international holding constructing mines for a Russian potash company since 2009. One of its recent projects involves another international holding company investing in Russia’s energy sector and its Russian subsidiary operating power plants near Moscow.
Not only is the scope of its projects growing but also the firm itself. Over the years the firm has been selecting talented lawyers from the leading law schools. Today, it is a dynamic and innovative law firm that blends industry knowledge and legal sophistication. Furthermore, Sirota & Partners aspires to contribute to legal research and development in Russia by participating in discussions and conferences on the legal industry, moderating forums and talks, and publishing professional articles.
