Partners of Goltsblat BLP, the Russian practice of Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP), ranked at the top of the 100 Most Authoritative Persons on the Russian Commercial Real Estate Market


Moscow/London, June 2014

Vitaly Mozharowski and Vladislav Sourkov, Partners of the Goltsblat BLP Real Estate and Construction Practice, have been ranked in the top three most authoritative persons on the commercial real estate market by CRE-100, one of the most prestigious industry ratings in Russia. It is drawn up annually by the editorial board of the magazine Commercial Real Estate, an influential Russian specialised real estate publication. The rating focuses on company activities, as well as the professional achievements of its employees and their personal contribution to development of the market, and then selects the 100 most outstanding persons on the commercial real estate market.

Vitaly Mozharowski, Partner, Head of Goltsblat BLP Real Estate and Construction Practice, is one of the most authoritative lawyers on the Russian market. He advises on investment projects, industrial and commercial real estate transactions and land legislation matters. In the spring of 2014, Vitaly was honoured as “Lawyer of the Year” by Best Lawyers, one of the most highly-respected peer review guides to the legal profession worldwide.

The Goltsblat BLP Real Estate and Construction Practice, led by Vitaly Mozharowski, is a team of high-class professionals with a brilliant reputation on the market. They provide legal support for real estate and construction projects in Russia. For several years running, the team has been ranked very highly by different professional legal guides in all main sectors of commercial real estate.

Our firm is well-known on the market as one of the strongest in the field of real estate and the fact that our lawyers are ranked at the top by the most authoritative ratings is further proof of the confidence shown by our clients and of the high quality service we provide. For many clients, real estate projects are not their main business. The many years’ of practical experience and the knowledge of our integrated international team allow them to help clients handle complicated situations and find the most effective solutions”, says Vitaly Mozharowski. “Perhaps that is why we not only enjoy the confidence of our regular clients but are also frequently contacted by new ones after we have worked on the opposing side.”

Vladislav Sourkov, Partner of the Goltsblat BLP Real Estate and Construction Practice, joined the Goltsblat BLP team at the end of 2013. Previously, Vladislav Sourkov led the real estate practice at Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld’s Moscow office for two years and, before that, he was the head of the CMS real estate practice. Vladislav has over ten years of real estate experience and is invariably included in such ratings as Legal 500, Chambers Partners and Best Lawyer as “one of the best Russian lawyers”.

Vladislav Sourkov says: “Real estate for us is the purpose of our professional life. Last year, we had a chance to work on many landmark transactions that are still unique on the market in terms of their scope. In particular, there was the sale by Capital Group to O1 Properties of the Legenda Tsvetnogo offices located in Moscow.”

The BLP Real Estate and Construction team is one of the most authoritative international teams, with more than 360 lawyers all over the world, and one of the biggest practices in Russia and the UK.
