Firm Details

Yakovlev & Partners Law Group started more than 25 years ago. Marketing, trading, engineering and consulting agency (MaTEC) was the first private legal firm in the USSR to be established by a group of lawyers with significant experience of work in state-owned institutions. In 1995, it was renamed into "MaTEC. Yakovlev & Partners". The principal area of practice was legal advice to Russian private companies in Russia and abroad. In 2003, Moscow Collegium of Advocates Yakovlev & Partners was established. Since then Yakovlev & Partners has focused on two principal areas of practice – legal advice and litigation.

During its history the law group has grown from three to over 75 lawyers. The key to this growth lies in the recruitment of graduates from top universities, who chose to study law because they wanted to handle complex legal matters. The firm’s ranks have also been gradually filled with experienced lawyers from other leading law firms and legal departments of large companies, hand-picked by the firm based on their special talents and professional and human qualities. As a result, the firm has gained experience, valuable contacts and a better perspective.

After more than 25 years of being in legal business, Yakovlev & Partners has become one of the leading legal firms in Russia, with 6 offices located in Moscow, Makhachkala, Kirov, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara and Tver. In 2011, the firm was rewarded by the National Bar Prize awards and recommended as one of the premier Russian law firms in ratings compiled by The Legal 500, Chambers & Partners, Best Lawyers, and Kommersant. The firm has earned a reputation as one of Russia’s best litigation companies for its energy and results-driven approach. Clients value the firm’s determination, because in a winner-takes-all world the stakes are often very high.

The firm advises companies on handling the banking, oil and gas, real estate, investment, manufacturing, energy, construction, transportation, food, pharmaceuticals, retail, entertainment and other industries.Yakovlev & Partners is accredited at Deposit Insurance Agency and Sberbank of Russia as a consultant on work with assets and bad debts. Clients include some of the largest Russian and foreign companies, such as Sebrbank of Russia, Rosatom, Lukoil, VTB bank, Tatneft, Deposit Insurance Agency, NOMOS-Bank, Raiffeisenbank, Campina, Samsung amongst others. In addition, the firm regularly advises various government agencies and public officials.

As the firm develops and achieves new successes, it continues to recognise more clearly the social significance of its work, which in turn leads the firm to apply higher standards. In particular, the firm’s lawyers regularly engage in pro bono work for individuals and non-profit organisations. The hours worked pro bono are counted in the same way as payable hours. In addition, the firm’s lawyers offer free advice to the public through various media outlets, including the internet. In addition to the firm’s pro bono work, it continuously provides financial assistance to families of police officers killed in the line of duty, children’s charities, orphanages and anti-cancer and anti-HIV foundations. It also awards prizes to students who are successful in the study of law. The firm is convinced that the stronger it is in the legal market the more attention shall be paid to social responsibility and bring benefits to society at large.
