Russian Law Firm | Legal Services in Russia
Welcome to Jus Privatum!
Jus Privatum is one of the leading Russian law firms with offices in Moscow, Saint-Petersburg and Duesseldorf (Germany). We provide comprehensive advice and representation to Russian and foreign clients in commercial matters.
Our name comes from the Latin and refers to private legal relations. When Russia began its transition from a command economy to the still-developing, market-based system that exists today, new laws and procedures were needed to accommodate the private commercial relationships that sustain it. The lawyers who founded the firm chose the name Jus Privatum because it both identifies our area of specialization and conveys the international character of our practice.
All of the firm's attorneys received their professional education after the change in economic systems. The majority of the firm's attorneys are graduates of Moscow State University and the Moscow State Institute of International Relations, two of the most prestigious universities in Russia. In addition to practicing law, our Russian lawyers contribute to various Russian law journals and participate in the preparation of textbooks on civil law. Their rigorous legal education, extensive practical experience and fluency in several languages allow Jus Privatum to offer its clients, both international and local, the highest quality of representation in commercial matters.
We are committed to providing our clients with timely and comprehensive legal advice regarding:
- corporate law,
- commercial contracts,
- real estate,
- intellectual property,
- taxation, and
- immigration matters.
When disagreements arise, we vigorously represent our clients' interests in informal dispute resolution, commercial arbitration and court proceedings.
Jus Privatum also operates a translation bureau staffed with highly-qualified translators who have extensive knowledge of legal terminology and are able to precisely translate any legal document.
