We’re known as one of the city’s most successful legal teams

Freshfields arrived in Russia just as it began opening up as a market economy.

Since then our Moscow office has handled some of Russia’s most significant, ground-breaking deals. Our team of Russian and global lawyers has secured an impressive client list in a wide range of sectors. We’ve also gained a reputation as a friendly place to work. As a result we’re now known as one of the city’s most successful legal teams. So whether you join as a lawyer, graduate or business services professional, Moscow is a great place to progress your career. Delivering ground-breaking deals isn’t easy of course. But if you’ve got an appetite for complex, challenging work, you’ll reap the rewards.
