"We are delighted to become part of Nobles, with whom we share common values and vision," Aleksyeyenko said of the move. "I am looking forward to working with my new colleagues across the firm to deliver first-class legal service to clients facing various challenges."
"We trust the new colleagues will strengthen our competition law and IP practice, and share our approach of an integrative, compliant law firm focusing on international clients and modern values," Nobles Partner Alexander Weigelt commented.
