The Moscow office of BEITEN BURKHARDT was established in 1992. As one of the first major German law firms to get a foothold in the Russian market, we have considerable expertise in assisting both foreign and Russian investors and companies. Since then, our clients have also been able to expect Russian law advice of the same high quality as they are accustomed to receiving for their activities in Germany.

Our expertise is wide-ranging and covers corporate and commercial law, real estate, PPP, tax, labour, banking and finance law, compliance and litigation , as well as the protection of industrial property.

We have noteworthy experience with investments in machinery and plant engineering, with the automotive industry, in the construction and timber industries, in IT and with mass media. Our experience is also strong in the food, chemical, pharmaceutical and consumer goods sectors. Advising real estate companies, funds and developers, as well as banks and credit institutions in relation to their Russian projects and transactions are further focuses of our work.
