Russian firm Nektorov Saveliev & Partners has announced it is splitting its operations into two separate but associated brands. 

Partners Alexander Nektorov and Marat Davletbaev will continue to lead the practice called Nektorov Saveliev & Partners, which will focus on corporate investment services and transactional work under Russian and English law, while Sergey Saveliev and Egor Batanov will operate as Saveliev Batanov & Partners and will focus their work on litigation, corporate conflicts, and dispute resolution matters.

The partners said the move was to allow the firm to work more flexibly with clients as the different practices required different development strategies.
