Our Services in the UK

Pen & Paper has a history of advising the UK based clients as well as clients with interests in doing business in the UK. In 2016 we formed an alliance with Bivonas Law, a pre-eminent London law firm specialising in white-collar crime (economic crimes and corruption) and commercial litigation.

The combination of our independent resources provides access to international and domestic expertise and the high level connections of both practices. Our firms have established a high level of trust and mutual understanding and our close communication enhances the service we can provide for our clients. 

Pen & Paper and Bivonas Law’s services can be provided seamlessly when assisting clients facing parallel criminal and/or civil proceedings in both the English and Russian jurisdictions.

Our many years of international experience enable us to offer clients the highest level of advice in all areas of white-collar crime investigations and prosecutions, and commercial disputes including those involving fraud, international asset tracing, freezing and search orders and offshore trusts. We also advise in all aspects of Russian corporate law.

 We act for large and medium-sized businesses and for private individuals, involving matters carrying significant reputational and financial risk. We have a global network of specialist lawyers and high level advisors, which allows us to meet the most complex of challenges and succeed for our clients. 

 Examples of our work include:

•    Shareholder dispute involving a major Russian manufacturer and an offshore subsidiary.

•    Defending an extradition request.

•    Advising in relation to an Interpol Red Notice.

•    Acting for a business owner accused of fraudulently obtaining bank loans.

•    Advising a victim of corporate raiding.

•    Representing an employee of a major IT company accused of theft of intellectual property.

•    Assisting an investment fund in relation to asset recovery involving fraud by a shareholder.

The two firms work closely together on a day to day basis, ensuring both Russian and English fluent speakers are always available to our clients in Moscow, St. Petersburg and London.

International guide Chambers Europe 2018 recommends Pen & Paper as the leading firm in Corporate Crime and Dispute Resolution practice areas.
