Firm Description:

Danilov & Partners offers one of the most experienced and dedicated teams of international attorneys qualified to advise under Russian, English, US and Singapore law.

Clients increasingly seek nimble firms that can deliver quality legal advice faster and on a tighter budget than ever before. We created Danilov & Partners in 2014 with this idea in mind. Our ‘Big Law. Flexible Firm’ philosophy is reflected in everything we do. For the D&P team, we pick bright and experienced international attorneys from leading firms. We provide top-notch, big law experience without the hassle of big firm rigidity and bureaucracy. A smaller firm platform allows us to respond quickly to clients’ needs while guaranteeing a high quality service.

In five years since the firm’s inception, we have helped clients successfully complete deals with an aggregate value of over US$20 billion. We have advised on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, private equity, blockchain transactions, construction projects and assisted with regulatory/antitrust issues in Russia, USA, Europe, Middle East, South-east Asia and Africa.

Because of our international background, we are able to bridge the gap that often exists between Russian clients and their international counterparties in cross- border transactions.

In addition to foreign law qualified lawyers in our Moscow office, we work closely with leading international law firms.
