6 April 2016 Goltsblat BLP ranked top by Kommersant
Goltsblat BLP, the Russian practice of the international law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP), is among the top biggest law firms as ranked by the prestigious Russian business publication Kommersant. The ranking was published in its special supplement "Legal Business" on 29 March 2016.
The Firm comes 2nd among the Top 50 law firms in terms of revenue in Russia. Many Goltsblat BLP Practices did impressively well this year, as they leaped up by several positions. This reflects their fast-paced growth over the last year and places the Firm among the Top 3.
In particular, the Real Estate & Construction Practice is ranked 1st while Corporate/M&A and Tax move up to 2nd place, accounting, inter alia, value of deals, projects and cases supported. The ranking puts Goltsblat BLP among the top 3 firms in Antitrust Disputes and Advice and Criminal Law.
Kommersant’s ranking assesses the legal market leaders on the unique nature, complexity and business relevance of their cases/matters, as well as their revenue: "A firm's revenue demonstrates the market demand for its services, its competitiveness and the high value of its services for the clients... clients will only entrust their biggest-ticket cases of greatest commercial importance to the best and well-trusted adviser".
Kommersant's rating also takes account of the international rankings: over recent years, Goltsblat BLP and its key lawyers have regularly been recognised for their achievements by the leading international rankings and directories, such as Chambers Global, Chambers Europe, The Legal 500 EMEA, IFLR1000 and Who is Who Legal.
