Russian Federation Practice Nears 20th Year Serving the Region
New York, September 14, 2009 — The international law firm of Chadbourne & Parke LLP has announced today that Konstantin Konstantinov has rejoined Chadbourne’s practice in the Russian Federation as a partner in its Moscow office. Mr. Konstantinov had practiced with Chadbourne for over 11 years. For a short period of time he worked at Dechert LLP which established a presence in Russia recently. He has now returned to Chadbourne.
Mr. Konstantinov, a Harvard educated Russian advocate, is admitted to practice in both New York and Russia. He advises clients on international commercial and financial matters, including project finance, securities regulation, secured finance, debt restructuring and mergers and acquisitions.
“We are very pleased to welcome back Konstantin as the sixth resident partner in our Moscow office,” said Chadbourne Managing Partner Charles K. O’Neill. “Our lawyers and our clients know him as an outstanding transactional lawyer and an extremely valued colleague and advisor.”
Chadbourne’s Moscow office was established in 1990 and has been recognized as one of the leading law offices in Russia, most recently by Acquisition Finance Magazine and International Law Office. The firm’s St. Petersburg office opened in 2005.
Each of the partners in Moscow and St. Petersburg has more than a decade of experience advising clients on Russian transactions. Chadbourne’s Moscow office is a full service practice, providing Russian, English and U.S. legal advice to clients on a wide range of matters, including corporate, finance and litigation. It is supported by over 400 lawyers in 11 other Chadbourne offices, including Kyiv, Almaty and Warsaw.
“As it has been for almost 20 years, Chadbourne & Parke continues to be committed to Russia and to our CIS practice,” said Moscow Senior Partner Mikhail Rozenberg. Added Jennifer Handz, Moscow Managing Partner, “I echo the sentiments expressed by Charlie O’Neill in New York and Mikhail Rozenberg here in Moscow. We intend to take full advantage of Konstantin’s prominent reputation as a leading international practitioner, and we are delighted to have him back.”
