A Case Study Guide to M&A Transactions in Russia


Goltsblat BLP is proud to present its new book ‘A case study guide to M&A transactions in Russia’, authored by Corporate/M&A Partners Ian Ivory and Anton Sitnikov and edited by Goltsblat BLP Managing Partner and Senior Corporate/M&A Partner Andrey Goltsblat.

‘A case study guide to M&A transactions in Russia’ is a new and unique product, not only for Russia but also for the entire global M&A practice. It provides detailed guidance on Russian market M&A transactions. The authors endeavoured to provide as accurate and detailed a description as possible of how internationally accepted legal tools work in Russia and analyse numerous case studies. The book discusses the entire M&A process and gives recommendations, from the initial preparation stages to final completion steps. It is virtually a snapshot of how M&A transactions are structured in Russia.

“‘A case study guide to M&A transactions in Russia’ endeavours to give a vivid picture of how M&A process and instruments work. The illustration we provide gives an entirely novel view of the directions for further improvement in the Russian law enforcement practice", says Goltsblat BLP Partner and Head of Corporate/M&A Anton Sitnikov, who is also one of the authors of the new publication.

The book is intended for a diverse readership, including practising M&A lawyers, students, professors, public service officers and judges, and might also attract all those interested in M&A topics.

Ian Ivory, Goltsblat BLP Corporate/M&A Partner and an author, said: "I am happy that the book enjoys universal interest from our clients and all persons inquiring into Russian markets. The book covers the full M&A process in Russia, from the initial negotiations and heads of terms, right the way through to completion and post-completion matters. At each stage in the process, a fictional case study of a deal (based on real experiences) runs alongside legal analysis and explanations. The guide is aimed at both lawyers and non-lawyers and also at both experienced M&A practitioners and those with little or no experience".

Andrey Goltsblat, Managing Partner, Senior Corporate/M&A Partner at Goltsblat BLP and the book’s editor: “We summarised our experience of supporting hundreds of transactions in order to make the product most useful for individual readers and overall development of the Russian legislation in general. So I am convinced that ‘A case study guide to M&A transactions in Russia’ will enjoy the same popularity and demand as our first publication in this sphere, ‘Use of English law in Russian transactions’”.
