Years of experience


About their firm

For over 15 years, MGAP have operated as a boutique law firm providing bespoke Russian law legal advice to our clients in the international legal services market. When MGAP was founded, back in 2001, it had only one aim regarding its strategy description: to work with international clients and law firms in order to achieve the highest possible level of expertise to bridge the different legal worlds. We have since been recognised as succeeding in this task thanks to prestigious international rankings such as the Legal 500 (EMEA) and Chambers and Partners (Europe). Back at the start of its business, MGAP became the first Russian member of the Law Society of England and Wales International Division. A key element of our work is legal support for international projects. For foreign companies, MGAP helps ensure their operations in Russia are secure, safe and transparent and the same for Russian companies trading in foreign markets; taking into account the different legal regulations for business in other countries. We have a solid team of highly qualified lawyers with significant experience in providing legal advice on various dispute resolution, litigation and arbitration matters as well as corporate, commercial and TMT matters.
