M&A and Corporate Finance
Formed in 1991 and based in Moscow, we have an almost unequalled track record and reputation across a diverse range of practice areas and industries – representing some of the world’s largest and best companies. MZS is ideally placed to solve the complex challenges of international and Russian law that are increasingly arising in everything from Mergers & Acquisitions to Dispute Resolution. The foundation of much our success is based on our long term investment in people and resources. Our knowledge of, and contribution to, doctrinal work has consistently enabled our lawyers to provide winning arguments based on proven academic authority – with a strong heritage in dispute resolution and the courtroom. Most importantly, this experience has provided a solid foundation for expertise and growth that feeds into virtually every part of the MZS service portfolio – in products ranging from Taxation through to Employment and Antitrust and across sectors from Energy & Metals to Retail.
