Russia’s KIAP law firm has announced the launch of a new Commercial practice, to be headed by Julia Kirpikova, and “curated” by Partner Ilya Ischuk.
According to KIAP, “segregating the commercial direction into a separate practice has resulted from an increased number of client requests related to doing business in Russia, a rise in the quantity of legal inspections, and the need to develop a system of new contractual links and bring a company's internal regulations into correspondence with the new realities of the Russian economy."
The firm also reports that, “besides the basic services, additional areas of activity include consulting clients in the sphere of e-commerce and electronic payment systems, developing and analyzing documents governing sales promotion, providing legal support in the sphere of personal and confidential data protection, and providing legal assistance in the sphere of licensing of certain types of activities and environmental regulation."
"We are happy to congratulate Julia on the appointment,” commented Managing Partner Andrey Korelskiy. "Well-deserved promotions always inspires our team to move further. I am sure that the new direction under Julia’s efficient management will be highly appreciated by our clients".
