Goltsblat BLP Ranked in Tier 1 for Private Wealth Law in Russia by the First Ever Chambers HNW Guide

12.07.2016

Goltsblat BLP has been top ranked (Tier 1) for Private Wealth Law in Russia by the first ever Chambers High Net Worth (HNW) guide, making the firm one of only three law firms in Russia to be recommended for legal and tax work for high net worth individuals.

Chambers HNW is the first directory for the private wealth market organised by Chambers & Partners, one of the most prestigious publications for lawyers worldwide. Objective, independent and research-based, the guide recognises the world’s leading high net worth advisers.

Goltsblat BLP’s cross-border work for HWIs and joint expertise with the leading private client practice of BLP in London have been particularly highlighted by the researchers. 

The practice, both for tax and legal work for HNWIs, is led by Evgeny Timofeev, Partner, Head of Russia/ CIS Tax Practice, who has also been ranked in Band 1 by Chambers & Partners for several years now, making him one of the six most recommended tax lawyers in Russia.  In 2016, the Tax Practice of Goltsblat BLP has been shortlisted for the Russia Tax Firm of the Year award (International Tax Review European Tax Awards). 

Chambers HNW 2016 reports the following comments on Goltsblat BLP:

“The "very professional and well-organised" Russian practice of international firm Berwin Leighton Paisner is described by sources as "one of a small number of law firms that can provide cross-border advice on those topics relevant to private clients." The firm's ability to call on expertise from its network of offices, and in particular its headquarters in London, is noted by commentators for its usefulness to Russian clients. 

Goltsblat BLP regularly advises Russian individuals and families on issues related to cross-jurisdictional work, investments in Russia, matters of wealth structuring and governance, and establishing family offices, trusts and funds. Market observers repeatedly highlight the firm's co-operative approach to advice, saying that "it's a pleasure working with them" and that "everything's very smooth."

Notable practitioners: Evgeny Timofeev is a key contact for this practice area.”
