Goltsblat BLP, the Russian practice of the International law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP) is the winner of Russia Law Firm of the Year – Chambers Europe Awards 2015.

This is the most prestigious of the Chambers & Partners awards, given annually to the best law firms of the world.  Among other things, the competent award panel recognised Goltsblat BLP's outstanding performance results in key areas and its strong annual achievements, including participation in major international projects, impressive strategic growth and service excellence.

"The team's main strengths are its 'out-of-the-box' vision, quick reaction to business needs and legislative changes, and its deadline-meeting skills", clients of the firm emphasise in the recent Chambers Europe 2015 rating.  They also recognise as Goltsblat BLP's merits: "Great local and international knowledge", "excellent industry knowledge and business acumen", "a strong offering on the ground in Moscow".

Andrey Goltsblat, Managing Partner, Goltsblat BLP: "Recognition of Goltsblat BLP as Russia Law Firm of the Year is incontrovertible proof of our firm’s success and leadership on the Russian legal market. I am pleased that Goltsblat BLP's success and the client service we provide continue to be so appreciated globally: in 2015, Goltsblat BLP has also been nominated for the Best International Law Firm in Europe award, according to the authoritative publications The Lawyer and Legal Business. All these achievements are a result of joint efforts by top legal professionals who achieve client-tailored results even in the tough economic environment."

The new Chambers Europe 2015 rating names Goltsblat BLP among highly recommended law firms in fifteen areas, including the firm's key practices (Corporate/M&A, Litigation and Dispute Resolution, Competition, Tax) and, for the first time, among the leading law firms in Mining.  Top ranked is the Goltsblat BLP Real Estate Practice (Band 1).  Moreover, this year seventeen of our lawyers are recommended in different areas.

The Chambers & Partners  ranking is drawn up by looking at a firm’s progress and development throughout the whole research year, including the most significant projects, ranking changes, new office openings, firm growth, and above all the client feedback. Unlike the rankings, which focus on teams and individuals in certain practice areas, the Chambers & Partners award highlights how well a firm is performing in a jurisdiction or region as a whole.

Vedomosti: "The Chambers & Partners law firm ranking is the most prestigious in the world. To be on this list is equivalent to being a member of an exclusive club and gaining recognition for professionalism. Nomination as Law Firm of the Year is one of the highest awards on the legal services market. This year, the winner is Goltsblat BLP."
