О юридической фирме:

In 2020, after thirteen and a half years, Mikhail left a top-tier US law firm, Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, where he was a senior member of the M&A group, to run his own law practice.

He has over 15 years of unrivalled hands-on experience in advising domestic and foreign corporates on cross-border M&A in real estate, metals, petrochemicals, oil and gas, banking and other industries in Russia and the CIS and, more generally, on diverse matters of corporate and commercial law. Mikhail also advises high net worth individuals and other clients across a vast range of matters relating to civil and private international law (including private wealth structuring) and has extensive experience in economic restrictive measures (sanctions/counter-sanctions), antitrust, strategic investment, currency control and other regulatory matters in Russia and the CIS. He routinely works in close cooperation with local counsel in all foreign jurisdictions that are normally used for the structuring of M&A deals in Russia and can offer first-rate insights into the various issues of deal structuring and corporate governance involving those jurisdictions.

Mikhail has developed a number of model forms for M&A deals for the Moscow office of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, including Russian law governed sale and purchase agreements for LLCs and JSCs, put and call options, non-disclosure agreements and a set of M&A closing documentation for both Russian and foreign targets. He has also assisted clients with developing their model documentation, including Incoterms-based agreements for international supplies, commercial contracts and various corporate documents.

Mikhail is a member of the International Chamber of Commerce’s Commission on Commercial Law and Practice (ICC CLP) and a member of the ICC Russia working committee on Incoterms® 2020.

Mikhail has co-authored a number of articles on corporate and commercial matters, including “Implied Duty of Good Faith in English Contract Law”, The Ukrainian Journal of Business Law (February, 2020), “Doctrine of Good Faith in English Case Law”, Yuridicheskiy Mir (January, 2020), “Top 10 Legal Developments in Russian M&A in 2018”, AO-Journal (February, 2019), “Model Charters Issued for Russian Limited Liability Companies”, AO- Journal (December, 2018); “Re-Domiciliation Of Foreign Companies In Russia”, Corporate Lawyer Magazine (November, 2018); “Exit from Negotiations. How to Avoid Liability”, Corporate Lawyer (April, 2018) and “Top 10 Legal Developments in Russian M&A for 2017”, Joint Stock Company Law Review (February, 2018).

Mikhail joined the Moscow office of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP in June 2006 and also worked in their London office in 2012. Prior to joining Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, he was a trainee at a leading Russian law firm and also worked at a prominent French international law firm, Gide Loyrette Nouel, where he was a member of the M&A practice group.

In 2006 Mikhail graduated with honours (among the top five students) from the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO-University), with a Master’s in International and EU Law.

Mikhail is admitted to practice in Russia. A native speaker of Russian, he is fluent in English and French.
