Russia & CIS Desk

The French Riviera in general and Monaco in particular have historical strong ties with Russia.

During its nearly century old presence in the Principality, Gordon S. Blair has developed a specific expertise in the assistance of a Russian/CIS states clientele ranging from private issues (residency in Monaco, ownership structure planning, tax advises, yachting) to corporate transactions both inbound and outbound (incorporation of Russian subsidiaries in the EU and Monaco, distribution and joint venture agreements in Russia).

Our offices propose a comprehensive tailor made and truly international service dedicated to this specific clientele through our Russia/CIS Desk composed of experienced international lawyers including Russian speaking counsels.

Our team aims on a daily basis to remain updated on the tendencies of the extra-changing legal environment of this part of the world. Every year we participate in a large range of international conferences and events to share our know-how and experience and to strengthen our existing business network of professionals and correspondent law firms in Russia and elsewhere.
