Financial and corporate

FBK Legal is a local firm which during the research period was active in M&A, restructuring and insolvency and project development. 

The firm’s strongest practice area is M&A, where it acted for both buyers and sellers recently. A practice area highlight was advising Rossiysky Capital on acquiring a company with a contract on a state museum construction, Polytech Museum Moscow. 

In project development, the firm saw work across the mining, energy, and in PPP. A notable transaction in that work was representing Gazprom on a midstream project in Siberia.

In restructuring and insolvency, the firm largely worked on insolvency proceedings, with some work in restructuring. 

The firm hired two new senior lawyers, Dmitry Andreev from Gazpromtrans, and Alexey Nefedov from the legal department of Gazprom. Both joined in May 2017 and work in M&A and project development, specifically in oil and gas. 

High profile clients of the firm include Sberbank, Gazprom, and China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation.
