What the team is known for
Skadden boasts a highly respected practice in Russia known for its track record of advising on complex, cross-border M&A and capital markets transactions. The Moscow team's close ties to the firm's London office is a particularly attractive prospect for clients, and the firm regularly cooperates with overseas teams situated throughout the firm's broader international network to advise on transactions which involve the USA, Asia and Europe.
Skadden in Russia stands out for the quality of its M&A capabilities. Specialists in Moscow astutely handle complex cross-border deals for a mixture of domestic and international clients. Cross-border capital markets transactions are a staple of the team's caseload, as are international private equity transactions.
A foreign client comments: "They have been helping us on some sophisticated work in Russia, and they know what an international approach is. I have meetings with my CEO, and in such meetings it has to be succinct; Skadden really helps me there, to break down the concepts."
Another source says: "They are flexible, client-oriented and help us navigate the business environment," adding: "We can fully trust them, they never let us down."
