LEGAL SERVICES FOR RUSSIAN AND FOREIGN INDIVIDUALS
Legal services for Russian or foreign individuals can take one of three forms: one-off consultation or drafting of a written legal resolution, permanent legal services on the Personal Lawyer programme (from ˆ240 a year), or the representation of a client in court (if necessary without the client’s appearance).
The most common requirements of individual clients fall into the following categories:
- Appeals against the actions or decisions of the organs of state power.
- Disputes connected with real estate property and conflicts over attic space.
- Disputes over copyright or other intellectual property rights.
- Divorce proceedings.
- Inheritance affairs.
- Defense in criminal proceedings
Defence in criminal proceedings, including those connected with an individual’s business activities, is considered a separate category of legal service.
