Russia and CIS Region

Sherrards’ Russia and CIS legal team is experienced in acting for UK companies seeking investment opportunities in Russia and the CIS region, as well as dealing with foreign companies and individuals investing in or trading with the UK.

We have expertise in handling litigation and arbitration involving parties from the Russia/CIS region which are being resolved in the UK. The UK is often seen as the jurisdiction of choice for disputes, due its world-leading judicial system and because the law of England and Wales is frequently used as the governing law of contracts worldwide.

The team is led by Marta Grieve (née Khomyak) who has practised extensively in the region, including Astana; Kazakhstan and in Kiev, Ukraine. Marta is fluent in English, Russian and Ukrainian, and able to communicate in Spanish and Polish.
