RUSSIAN DESK: In recent years, several Russian financial institutions suffered bankruptcy or other crises due to the investment activities of their shareholders and former management, who syphoned assets from various financial transactions to offshore safe havens. Wolf Theiss – in particular Clemens Trauttenberg and Valerie Hohenberg - are known as the experts in this field and the Russian legal community constantly refer such cases directly to them. Currently, Wolf Theiss' largest cross-border case by volume involves a Russian angle and multiple jurisdictions.
