Allen & Overy is the latest firm to relocate its Russian lawyers to Dubai following the winding down of its operations in Moscow.

Its Moscow base had comprised 55 people, including 24 lawyers, before the firm announced its intention to close in early March following the Russian invasion of Ukraine. A person with knowledge of the situation said that the Russia lawyers would most likely be based in the firm’s office in the Dubai International Financial centre, rather than the firm opting to open a separate base to house them. In response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, all 25 large international firms with Russian bases had ceased operations in the region by mid March.
