Russian lawyer Vakhtang Fedorov has joined Art De Lex as Head of its Criminal Law practice.
Art De Lex describes Fedorov as "a well-known expert in criminal law and process with 20 years of experience in economic and corruption, official, and commercial crimes." According to the firm "he represented companies and individuals in cooperation with supervisory and law enforcement agencies."
According to Art De Lex, "Fedorov has a unique experience in organizing successful protection in criminal cases related to economic activities, including in the financial sector, industry and trade. He defended the head of a large jewelry holding, [accused] of committing several episodes of fraud on a particularly large scale. He is currently representing the former head of Russia's leading space industry, [who is] accused of abuse of power."
Dmitry Magonya, Managing Partner of Art De Lex, described Fedorov's joining as "an important event for the firm, which will significantly strengthen the criminal practice of Art De Lex. [Fedorov's] international experience will help further develop international Art De Lex projects, especially [our] Turkish Desk."
