The leading regional business newspaper in the Russian northwest, Delovoy Peterburg, has published the results of a new study of the region’s legal market. Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners is once again the confirmed leader.
Delovoy Peterburg assessed the 2016 results of over 40 law firms, including both national firms and the Russian offices of the major international players. The Firm was the leader in terms of revenue both for the company as a whole and for its key practices, such as dispute resolution, real estate and construction, and administrative law.
These rankings are the first part of a larger annual study conducted by Delovoy Peterburg. The companies were evaluated based on the total revenue of the firm (or regional office), revenues by individual practice and by client’s economic sector, as well as the company's recognition by the leading international publications Chambers & Partners, The Legal500, IFLR 1000 and Best Lawyers. The calculations were based on data provided by the law firms themselves, public sources, and peer and expert assessments.
