Goltsblat BLP managing partner, Andrey Goltsblat will be moderating a session entitled ‘The Art of Doing Business in Russia’ on Tuesday 29 September at 3.30pm. As one of Russia’s best known corporate lawyers, Andrey is expertly placed to lead the panel in a discussion which will focus on key factors for success and avoidance of pitfalls in the Russian market. Andrey says: “The RSBF is the ideal forum to promote links between Russia and Singapore. Unfortunately many investors believe in myths around doing business in Russia. A number of matters in Russia are regulated in an extremely complex manner and a variety of government authorities have to be approached. A vast amount of time is needed to cut through all this red tape and clients immediately might get the idea that the reason they cannot, for example, obtain a land plot or the requisite permits to launch construction is because of the corruption. We need to make sure that they don't make the wrong conclusion. Work is needed on this, to simplify procedures in Russia. Having represented a significant percentage of the MNCs investing into Russia, we understand how to get things done properly in compliance with the law and protect foreign parties investment in Russia.”
