Litigation and arbitration. International commercial arbitration. Debt collection

Since the creation of the Moscow Collegium of Advocates within Yakovlev & Partners® Law Group, we have mainly wanted to focus our efforts on legal representation, and we have succeeded. To date, the litigation practice is the highest priority among all the company’s activities.
