The automotive industry is experiencing many challenges. Globalization, enormous competition, pressure to reduce prices and costs, environmental standards and changing rules and regulations are just some of the tough developments we are helping our clients to face.

Our automotive group was created to provide an integrated service to meet the needs of automotive clients across the industry ranging from manufacturing through to distribution, retail and after-market services.

Clients can benefit from our breadth and depth of legal skills, knowledge and experience gained from advising automotive clients throughout Russia and Europe, offering an integrated service and "one stop shop" for clients with an international presence.

We have advised the leading international automobile groups on several major projects for the construction of manufacturing facilities in various regions of Russia. All projects include extensive advice on construction agreements, investment contracts with local administrations and infrastructure related agreements etc. Good relationships with local authorities and lobbying bodies have been established in many regions.
