Goltsblat BLP, the Russian practice of BLP, has been shortlisted for The Lawyer European Awards 2014 in the “International Law Firm of the Year” category among  international law firms performing projects in continental Europe.

The Lawyer European Awards are held annually by the well-known legal publication The Lawyer and  one of the most prestigious awards in the legal community. The panel of judjes consists of in-house counsel of major multinational companies and managing partners of leading international law firms.

Andrey Goltsblat, Managing Partner of Goltsblat BLP, notes: “It is a great honour for us to be among the finalists for such a prestigious award. Over the last year, we have seen a considerable increase in the number of large-scale and interesting projects for supporting cross-border transactions of both our Russian and  foreign clients implementing investment projects in Russia and abroad. The firm’s key practices have demonstrated rapid growth averaging more than 20% over last year. The services of our M&A and litigation experts have been in particular demand. Our relatively new finance practice has made substantial advances and is now providing support to clients on a number of major projects, including ones of international significance. These impressive results are to the credit of our entire team of over a hundred lawyers qualified in Russian, English and New York law, as well as our colleagues in the eleven BLP offices in the world’s financial and commercial centres."

The award results will be announced on 20 February 2014 at the awards ceremony in London
