A team of former King & Spalding Moscow lawyers, including Managing Partner Sergey Komolov, Counsel Ilya Zotkin, and Associate Stanislav Rzhaksenskiy, will join Russia's Rybalkin, Gortsunyan & Partners law firm in July.

The move comes several months after King & Spalding announced that it would be closing its Moscow office this summer.

According to Rybalkin, Gortsunyan & Partners Managing Partner Suren Gortsunyan, "we ... are delighted to welcome the new team on board." According to Gortsunyan, "the arrival comes at a time when we have transformed from a smaller-sized boutique firm to become a serious player not just by the caliber of disputes our clients entrust us to handle, or our market-leading financial performance, but also by the breadth of our human talent and the number of lawyers on our team."

Komolov, who will join RGP as a Partner in its Corporate practice, said that "I am very excited to join the RGP team which has an excellent reputation and track record. We will stay on best friends terms and continue to work together with King & Spalding on several matters while at RGP.”

While not all details of the move are public, RGP reported that it "is also in discussions to take over the premises of King & Spalding to continue organic expansion of its office at Tsvetnoy Boulevard in the heart of Moscow."
