The Pepeliaev Group has announced the opening of its own office in Vladivostok, led by Natalya Prisekina, who joins the firm as a Partner.

According to the Pepeliaev Group, Natalya Prisekina "has significant experience in supporting transactions and providing legal services in the areas of maritime, transportation, and employment law. She has over 25 years of practical experience. Moreover, Natalya is an expert of the Association of Russian Lawyers, a certified mediator and a member of the Association of Mediators of the Pacific Rim, a judge of the Arbitration Tribunal of the Chamber of Commerce of the Primorsky Region and of the Russian Arbitration Center at the Russian Institute of Modern Arbitration. She is the honorary consul of the Republic of Chile in Vladivostok. Natalya is an Assistant Professor at the International Public and Private Law Department and Assistant Director for Science and Innovation at the Far Eastern Federal University."

This is not the Pepeliaev Group's first office in the Far East, as it opened a Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk office in 2015. In Vladivostok, the firm had been working in association with a local law office. "However," a firm press release announced, "to maximize the efficiency of project work and for our clients’ convenience, we have made a decision to open an office of Pepeliaev Group’s own." 

“We are sure that this is the right time for us to have made a strategic decision to put down roots in Vladivostok, which is expected to soon become the capital of the entire Far Eastern Federal District," said Pepeliaev Group Managing Partner Sergey Pepeliaev. "I have known Natalya Prisekina for 10 years: she is an outstanding specialist and a gifted organizer."

A Pepeliaev Group spokesperson informed CEE Legal Matters that the firm is currently assembling its team in Vladivostok, and that "as a first step we are planning to hire about 4-5 employees. After that we’ll decide whether we need more people there or not."
