Firm Details

KK&P (Kulkov, Kolotilov & Partners) is a litigation and arbitration boutique based in Moscow. The firm focuses exclusively on complicated commercial disputes.

In 2018, The GAR 100 2018 has listed KK&P, Russia’s only arbitration and litigation boutique, among the best firms handling international arbitration (KK&P’s page in The GAR 100 2018 may be accessed at: https://globalarbitrationreview.com/benchmarking/gar-100-11th-edition/1167610/kulkov-kolotilov-partners ).

Also, KK&P has been ranked among the five best Russian law firms handling complex dispute resolution cases (according to Chambers Europe 2018 and Pravo.ru-300, Russia’s main domestic law firm ranking). In 2017, the firm won 94% of cases, the total value of which was around US$1 billion.

KK&P's team is led by Maxim Kulkov, who has over 23 years’ experience and is considered by peers and colleagues to be one of the best dispute resolution lawyers in Russia.  Maxim has won over 100 disputes.

The firm's team also includes two Maxim's co-partners - Oleg Kolotilov and Nikolay Pokryshkin - the "driver" of the firm's insolvency practice.

Oleg Kolotilov has 14 years' experience advising and representing Russian and international clients in complex multi-jurisdictional disputes, cross-border and international litigation and arbitral proceedings in Italy, Belgium, France, Austria, Ireland and other jurisdictions.  Nikolay Pokryshkin, whose leadership of the firm’s insolvency practice has resulted in its rapid growth, is highly experienced in matters concerning recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral awards, as well as in obtaining interim relief measures and coordinating foreign proceedings.

All KK&P’s partners are members of the Moscow Region Bar.

KK&P's team members are highly-experienced trial lawyers with market-leading litigationarbitration and investigatory backgrounds and have many years of successful experience in well-known international law firms.

KK&P has extensive experience in dispute resolution and has represented clients in Russian state commercial courts and courts of general jurisdiction at all levels (including the Supreme Court and the Constitutional Court) in most of Russia’s regions. The firms actively represents clients as counsel in all major arbitration institutions, including the ICAC, ICC, SCC, LCIA and VIAC, as well as in ad hoc arbitrations (for example, under UNCITRAL rules). KK&P also assists clients with debt recovery, combating dissipation of assets, and with enforcement proceedings against debtors. Cases relating to asset tracing, including cross-border, and fraud investigation constitute a further expertise of the firm, which is in high demand by its clients.

KK&P's clients benefit from a dedicated and focused team with a partner’s active involvement from start to finish. The firm's smaller structure, which enables it to achieve greater flexibility in staffing and pricing and avoid conflicts of interest, has proved to be successful.
