Former Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners lawyer Vyacheslav Yugai has left that firm after eight years to become a local partner in Noerr’s Moscow office.

Yugai’s core practice area is corporate law and M&A. According to Noerr, "he advises Russian and foreign companies on the establishment and implementation of joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions and the structuring of international transactions." In addition, the firm reports, "Vyacheslav also advises companies regarding investment projects (including greenfield and brownfield investments and concluding and negotiating investment contracts, contract manufacturing agreements and distribution agreements) in the Russian Federation and abroad."

In addition to being licensed to practice law in Russia, Yugai is qualified as a solicitor of England and Wales and as an attorney in New York. In 2016-2017, he worked as a foreign attorney at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen and Katz in New York.

“We are very pleased that with Slava Yugai we have been able to get a very active, internationally experienced transaction lawyer on board,” said Christian Pleister, co-head of Noerr’s Private Equity practice. Bjorn Paulsen, Partner in Charge of Noerr’s Moscow office, addedthat: “Slava Yugai’s good contact with Russian companies combined with his international approach will allow us to expand our consulting portfolio in Moscow. This not only applies to the field of mergers and acquisitions in its narrow sense, but also to projects in other areas of legal practice.“

“Noerr is a top European law firm with an impressive track record,” said Yugai. “I am delighted to be given a chance to contribute to the firm’s success.”
