Russia > Banking and finance: Borrower side

Dentons’ banking practice has benefited from the recruitment of cross-border finance specialist Tamer Amara, who joined from Clifford Chance in July 2018. The team is led by the dual-qualified Timothy Stubbs, who counts European Investment Bank, VTB Capital and Rosgosstrakh as clients. Evgenia Laurson advises on project finance and pre-export facilities, while Andrej Strijak and counsel Dennis Montgomery are experienced in acquisition and export finance. Highlights included advising Eurochem on a $750m five-year unsecured club financing with a group of banks, including mandated lead arrangers BNP Paribas Bank and Citibank (London branch), and assisting Raven Russia with a $65m secured loan facility for the refinancing of a warehouse complex near Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg.
