Practice Area Definition

Investment Definition

Investment practice area covers legal advice and assistance in relation to the structuring and implementation of the investment projects with the view to use different investment laws and treaties and to exercise remedies and preferences for the investor. Any modern economy can develop and prosper only when it obtains sufficient funds and assets from internal and external sources. Therefore, authorities in any state are interested in attracting investors and offer special investment protection mechanisms, like a grandfather clause or compensation guarantees. 

However, not all the investors automatically enjoy the defense of their assets since the protection rules are often conditional upon the compliance with the qualification test or special requirements. Respectively, it is important to procure the transfer of assets or monetary funds seeking the investment protection regime corresponds to the definition of investments under applicable national laws and international treaties. 

Russia has extensive regulatory framework governing investments that comprises domestic laws of general application and laws focused on special types of investments (for instance, production sharing or concession projects), implementing regulations, and bilateral and multilateral investment treaties. Such laws and regulations are frequently revised and require permanent monitoring and updated analysis for their correct application.   

Investment lawyers face a very difficult task – they assist with the elaboration and further performance of an investment scheme that shall be acknowledged under local and international law and, at the same time, shall be efficient and not over complicated for its implementation. For that end, they help with the appropriate structuring of the investment deal, advise how to protect and secure investments, and defend the investor in claims from governmental and local authorities. Besides, legal advisors are expected to manage the risks connected with every investment project and to mitigate their potential effect. Experienced and qualified lawyers specialized in the investment field ensure that their clients enjoy full range of remedies available under domestic and international investment regulation.
