Latham & Watkins has wrapped up its long-running search for a Russian finance partner, bringing in senior Baker & McKenzie securities partner Mikhail Turetsky on Monday. He becomes the second partner based in Latham’s Moscow office.

“This has been [at the] top of our agenda for quite some time, so there’s a mixture of relief and extreme excitement about it all,” says Latham’s new Moscow office head, Chris Allen, who replaced former managing partner Mark Banovich in January. Latham first approached Turetsky last May, Allen says, adding: “We’ve been keeping an eye on the market for years, but frankly it can be difficult to recruit in Russia, and we never quite managed to pull it off. As soon as we found Mikhail, it was clear he’d be a great fit.”
