Capital Legal Services (CLS), Interlaw's strategic partner in Russia, has absorbed the Russian team of law firm Castrén & Snellman (C&S) Attorneys after the firm's decision to close its operations in Russia. 

Under the agreement, the lawyers formerly based in C&S' Russian offices will join CLS in their Moscow and St Petersburg offices and will continue to provide support to clients together.

CLS will continue to actively develop as an independent law firm with deep expertise in the fields where support is most in demand from clients, offering high quality services to clients and foreign investors in Russia. 

"We are very happy to welcome new colleagues to our team, with their many years of experience in providing reliable support to domestic and other foreign companies doing business in Russia. Together as one team, we can continue to offer clients a first rate service, allowing them to continue to trade successfully in the Russian market, which can sometimes be a challenge indeed", said CLS’s managing partner Vladislav Zabrodin.
