Boltenko Law is an independent boutique tax law firm focusing on strategic tax planning and effective solutions for clients from Russia, their international corporate structures and wealth planning vehicles. The firm combines legal expertise with a pragmatic approach to creating simple and elegant solutions that meet their clients’ needs.
For over three years Boltenko Law acted for a Russian family owning second largest meat producer in the country. The highlight of the last year was restructuring ownership of their Russian publicly listed company. The client particularly appreciated that the firm responded within 24 hours, called back within an hour, traveled to Moscow to meet the family members, and when requested, organised specialists in any location on short notice. The client was so pleased with their approach, that they appointed the firm as their trustees as well as their lawyers.
For nine years the firm acted for the principal of a Russian telecom group with presence in 8 countries. When his wife filed for a divorce in September 2018 in Spain, the speed of the firm's response was essential. Boltenko Law put together an excellent team of lawyers and formulated a strategy within 3 days.
When a Swiss bank threatened to close bank accounts of the foreign businesses of the largest fishing group in the Russian Far East, the firm found a compliant solution which allowed business to continue uninterrupted. At that point the firm had acted for the client for a year for one-off issues and following this, the client appointed Boltenko as their main offshore legal counsel replacing a Swiss law firm.
Despite being advised by many advisors, when an urgent issue arose for a Russian-British fin-tech billionaire, he and his partners liked the firm's direct and practical approach and so managing partner Olga Boltenko flew to London and worked through the issues over the weekend.
