Vinson & Elkins has advised clients on their investments and business dealings in the Russia/CIS region since the early 1970s. We established our Moscow office in 1991, and were one of the first international law firms to do so.
Using Moscow as a base for our
wide Russia CIS practice, we have represented numerous Russian, U.S., European,
and Asian companies on a multitude of energy, natural resources,
infrastructure, and other projects throughout the region.
We have followed the many changes in the region’s legal, regulatory, and geopolitical landscape and have helped our clients navigate through challenging legal regimes, including the laws and regulations applicable to cross-border transactions.
Our Moscow office works closely with colleagues in the Middle East, London, and Asia to provide seamless service to clients on our cross-border transactions in the energy and wider corporate sector.
