Since 2005, when Winston & Strawn launched its Moscow office, our lawyers have assisted our Russian clients in some of the biggest dollar transactions and most important litigation matters being completed anywhere in the world today.
For our Russian clients and worldwide companies doing business in Russia, the value we provide transcends just our substantive capabilities. Our attorneys, many of whom have been raised and educated in Russia, provide both a thorough understanding of the Russian business community and offer connections to a global network of contacts.
Through the efforts of local investment banks and state-backed companies in regional strongholds, such as oil and gas, Russia's economy is coming back to life, and our attorneys continue to partner with both Russian companies and businesses around the world to capitalize on the opportunities this region of the world has to offer.
In addition to our core team of practitioners handling Russian-related matters, whenever a broader interdisciplinary team is needed, we pull together our capabilities in an array of areas, including corporate finance, business counseling, corporate governance, securities, tax, ERISA, labor and employment, real estate, technology, intellectual property, and litigation and arbitration. In addition to our eight offices in the United States, our Russian practice teams are supported by international capabilities in Paris, London, Geneva, Hong Kong, Beijing, and Shanghai.
