Given the billions of dollars in oil wealth at stake, it's not surprising that the two sides in the ongoing dispute between oil major BP and the Russian shareholders in the joint venture BP-TNK have assembled a lengthy cast of legal advisers. BP is being advised by Linklaters and Russian local firm Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners. On the other side, the Russian oligarchs have lined up Cravath, Swaine & Moore, S.J. Berwin, Lovells, Swedish firm Vinge and Herbert Smith.
