Sergey Konnov, senior partner at Konnov & Sozanovsky, took the floor at the conference “Legal Business in Russia” held on April 15 – 16, 2008 in Moscow.
Konnov participated in the panel, ‘Expansion of law firms from CIS onto the Russian market”. In his remarks, he shared his vision of the penetration by the law firms from neighboring foreign countries into the legal market of the Russian Federation.
Sergey Konnov stressed that it is early to speak about expansion. On the other hand, the impact of the Ukrainian lawyers and law firms from Ukraine, as well as from the CIS on the legal market of Russia will clearly grow.
“Legal business in Russia” was organized by “Vedomosti” newspaper, one of the leading business editions in Russia.
