Russia's Danilov & Konradi law firm has announced that Lyudmila Merkulova has joined the firm as a partner and the head of the tax and forex regulation practice.
Before joining Danilov & Konradi, Merkulova worked at the Pepeliaev Group for ten years, most recently as a senior associate in the tax and forex regulation practice and as the head of the derivatives and risk hedging group. She graduated from the law school of Moscow State University in 2007 and received her PhD in law from the Moscow State Institute for International Relations in 2011.
Partner Brian Konradi said: “We are confident that Lyudmila´s broad experience in Russian and international taxation, foreign exchange regulation and control, and tax disputes will be highly demanded by our clients. The expansion of the firm´s team through the hire of Lyudmila is a logical step for us given the increasing complexity of the tax regulation in Russia and the growing number of tax disputes.”
Merkulova commented: “In addition to traditional tax and forex matters on which I will continue to advise, I also look forward to contributing to Danilov & Konradi’s active practices in cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology, and the other new models of doing business on the horizon.”
