Goltsblat BLP shortlisted as International Firm of the Year by Legal Business Awards 2016


Goltsblat BLP, the Russian practice of the international law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP), has been shortlisted second year in a row for prestigious Legal Business Awards by one of the leading international legal media, Legal Business, in the International Firm of the Year category.

International Firm of the Year is a Europe-wide nomination for firms from Europe, Latin America, Asia, Australasia, the Middle East and Africa. The nomination praises leading independent law firms demonstrating a growing market share, a well-conceived business strategy, stellar financial performance, strong management, a successful recruitment and retention strategy and a significant client development programme. The results will be announced on the 7 April at an awards ceremony in London. 

Goltsblat BLP’s substantial achievements on the market and client service excellence have already been recognised by a number of international directories in recent years: last year, Goltsblat BLP received the title of Russia Law Firm of the Year 2015 from Chambers Europe Awards for Excellence and, in 2016, the firm has again been shortlisted for this award (the results will follow later in April 2016). In 2015, Goltsblat BLP was nominated twice as International Firm of the Year (by Legal Business Awards and The Lawyer European Awards).

Andrey Goltsblat, Managing Partner, Goltsblat BLP, commented: "I am very pleased that, for the second time since the beginning of the year, Goltsblat BLP has been nominated for a prestigious award by an international legal directory. This serves as yet further proof that our team not only successfully handles any economic challenges that might arise but also continues as a leader on the legal services market, both in Russia and internationally."
