Establishment of RODIN & PARTNERS law firm was announced by a leading Russian legal media Legal Insight in July.
RODIN & PARTNERS combines a team of Artem Rodin, ex-partner of infrastructure, PPP and energy practice of CMS, and a practice of Timur Djabbarov, previously a senior litigation associate of a complex commercial litigation group of Dechert.
Artem Rodin commented on establishment of the new firm: “Currently, when role of a state in economy is growing, and the number of disputes is increasing, it is the right time for establishment of an independent law firm focused on PPP projects and dispute resolution. On the one hand, having many years of experience in international law firms, we continue to provide high-quality services to our clients, and on the other – a concept of an independent law firm enables clients to avoid excessive costs. In addition, the new model allows partners to be personally involved in all details of each project, reduces the chances for conflicts of interest, and eliminates administrative restrictions and those related to political sanctions.”
Timur Djabbarov commented on the establishment of RODIN & PARTNERS: “The establishment of an independent firm has been a long-felt intent. The reasons for this are recent geopolitical and economic changes, affecting the activities of our clients. Russian companies and international investors are becoming very selective, demanding and cost-sensitive. We foresee the expectations of the clients. Our concept is rather clear – high standard of quality, individual approach to the client, flexibility and reduction of fees. We achieve this by improving the efficiency of our working processes, which includes the adoption of new technology, and through optimizing costs.”
