Heuking Kuhn Luer Wojtek has established a Russian/CIS Desk.
According to the firm, “one highlight of the desk is that its members are lawyers admitted to the bar in Germany, all of whom are Russian native speakers and some of whom possess dual legal qualifications through completion of law studies not only in Germany, but also in Russia, Kazakhstan, or Belarus.”
"Germany is the second-largest trading partner for Russia after China,” says Anna Richter, Attorney at the firm’s Cologne office and member of the Russian/CIS Desk. “This offers numerous opportunities for successful cross-border cooperation for our clients. Many companies are forced by the development of the global economy to seek new markets for their products and new territories for further development. We are pleased to be able to offer our clients a central point of contact for the support of all Russia/CIS-related issues and a bridgehead function ‘between the worlds’ in the future."
