Freshfields makes BLP hire to lead Russia litigation in disputes push
Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has hired former Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP) Russia dispute resolution chief Maxim Kulkov to head up its Moscow litigation practice as part of a wider strategy to strengthen the firm’s disputes practice internationally. The magic circle firm has identified Russia, Asia, the Middle East and the US as key areas where it wants to expand its litigation practice in response to growing demand from existing clients and in order to capture new work. Including Kulkov, Freshfields has four disputes lawyers in Russia and this figure is expected to double over the next three years, with similar expansion planned in Asia, where the firm currently has three partners.
