Who we are MZS is based in Moscow with a staff of more than 30 lawyers, supported by an extened network of trusted and handpicked legal professionals worldwide


Our firm is built on a group of driven, dynamic and intellectually focused people who are pleasant and inspiring to work with. We invest heavily in broadening their skills and knowledge to ensure success when working across multiple jurisdictions and cultures.

International Network

In addition to our clients, we also work with many of the world’s leading international law firms, delivering specialist expertise and services that are either not available or not practical for them to deliver themselves. Our network of friends extends well beyond the legal world, to relationships with banks and various financial institutions that can benefit our clients.

Thought Leadership

We strive to put the huge intellectual capital within MZS to good use for the benefit of the legal and wider commercial worlds. To date lawyers from our firm have authored more than 80 publications, covering a wide variety of topics – helping to shape, not just debate, Russian law itself.

Academic Relationships

We maintain extremely close links with Russian academia. Not only does this enable us to share knowledge and experiences, but also to identify and recruit the bright young stars of tomorrow to the MZS team.

Pro Bono

We provide pro bono services (and financial contributions) to a range of good causes including the Moscow Journal of International Law, as well as The Fund of Grateful Alumni of the MGIMO International Law School. MZS is a key participant in the events held by theĀ Association of Russian Corporate Lawyers; and we also sponsor various student moot courts around the world, helping the next generation get a taste of the legal profession.

Through a charitable foundation MZS supports one of the leading doctrinal periodical in Russia, The Journal of Civil Law.
