Solutions: Russia/CIS client structuring

As a group we have focused on the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) region since the early 1990s and have a robust understanding of the issues associated with doing business there. Our team includes Russian and Ukrainian-speaking staff who liaise directly with clients and their advisers. Building relationships with our clients and understanding their motivations and aspirations is extremely important as it enables us to deliver a consistently high standard of service.

We specialise in establishing and administering trusts, companies, foundations and partnerships in a variety of key jurisdictions for clients who are based in the CIS region. Our services include creating and implementing structures for the purposes of asset protection, estate planning, and property and asset holding. We have in-depth experience of working with clients in Russia, Kazakhstan and the Ukraine.

We work with a number of advisers and banks that also have extensive experience of doing business in the CIS area. We also have dedicated teams that work solely with CIS clients. We work with immigration lawyers and have assisted clients in establishing structures as part of their relocation planning, as well as the investor visa process.
