The Moscow office of DLA Piper has picked up a four-person Real Estate team from Clifford Chance, led by Senior Counsel Marc Bartholomy and including Legal Director Nick Diakoumis, Senior Associate Anna Krutik, and Associate Alexandra Kuznetsova.
Bartholomy began his career at the Frankfurt office of Clifford Chance in 1994, and he had been a partner in the firm's Moscow office since 1999. According to DLA Piper, “with more than 25 years of experience, Bartholomy’s practice focuses on real estate projects, including acquisitions and disposals, construction and development, financing and leasing.”
“Marc and his team are no doubt a great complement to our practice as this hire marks a further step in the continued growth of DLA Piper’s Russian business,” commented Constantine Lusignan, Country Managing Partner of DLA Piper in Russia and the CIS.
“The team and I are very excited about joining DLA Piper Real Estate team and look forward to contributing to the further expansion of this already successful practice, helped by the synergies that exist within a market leading firm and the full service offering that it has,” said Bartholomy.
