& Partners


The Bar is perhaps the only national law firm, with offices in Moscow and St. Petersburg, that has successfully combined expertise in corporate conflicts, criminal law and white collar crime with specialization in dispute resolution, corporate law, bankruptcy, tax law and private international law for nearly 15 years.

In 2016, we entered into an alliance with a leading London law firm – Bivonas Law – which has a long history of providing legal services to clients from Russia and the CIS in connection with litigation in the UK.

Doing business in Russia has never been easy. The recent political and economic uncertainties complicate the business environment, where malfeasance and corruption are commonplace.

The two de facto independent firms are a successful combination of international and local experience, knowledge and high-level contacts.

According to the international Chambers Europe 2018 ranking, Pen & Paper is recommended in the categories “Criminal Law” and “Dispute Resolution”. Bivonas has been providing legal services in white collar crime and litigation for 20 years and is consistently ranked number one in the international Legal 500.

We provide legal support to clients involved in parallel criminal and/or civil cases in the jurisdictions of Russia and the United Kingdom.
