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

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

The best law firms in Europe are selected on the basis of client service quality, level of legal expertise, ability to work on high-profile transactions, innovative solutions offered to clients, financial growth and other criteria. Every year the largest and most progressive national and international law firms contend for the "firm of the year" title.

Andrey Goltsblat, the Managing Partner of Goltsblat BLP, notes: "I am very glad that second year in a row our firm’s achievements have deserved such a high recognition. Last year our firm won a number of prestigious international awards and this nomination is a very good start of this year. What is especially important is that we managed to sustain high levels of client service managing the pressures of the current economic environment: we are investing in new services and have introduced a number of new products for clients over the past year. We believe that this nomination is additional confirmation of our recognition as one of the leading international law firms in Russia and internationally."

The award results will be announced on 12th of March 2015 at the awards ceremony in London.
