We are part of a global network
Russia & CIS
Companies based in Russia and other CIS states are playing an increasingly active role in investments in the German and Western European market. Likewise, the CIS states remain an attractive export market for German and international enterprises. Gleiss Lutz advises private, public, and state-owned enterprises and financial investors based in the CIS on deals and doing business in Germany and the European Union. We also support German and international companies that are pursuing transactions in CIS states and advise on various day-to-day aspects of business relating to their CIS investments, such as on the introduction of compliance systems that meet international standards.
Gleiss Lutz’s CIS activities and expertise fall under our “CIS Advisory Group”. This team is made up of lawyers with many years of experience and excellent contacts in the region, including lawyers who are native speakers.
We can call on a proven and reliable network of leading independent and international law firms in Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan, and continuously maintain good contacts with reliable law firms that provide advice in in other CIS states (such as in Belarus, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan). This gives us the flexibility to put together hand-picked teams tailored to our clients’ specific needs whenever required.
