Pepeliaev Group opens its own office in Vladivostok
Pepeliaev Group announces the opening of its own office in Vladivostok. The team at the new office will provide the whole range of legal services in the Far East region.
Natalya Prisekina has been appointed to head the office and becomes a partner in the firm. Previously she was a senior partner at a major law firm in the Far East. Natalya has significant experience in supporting transactions and providing legal services in the areas of maritime, transportation and employment law. She has over 25 years of practical experience.
Moreover, Natalya is an expert of the Association of Russian Lawyers, a certified mediator and a member of the Association of Mediators of the Pacific Rim, a judge of the Arbitration Tribunal of the Chamber of Commerce of the Primorsky Region and of the Russian Arbitration Center at the Russian Institute of Modern Arbitration. She is the honorary consul of the Republic of Chile in Vladivostok. Natalya is an Assistant Professor at the International Public and Private Law Department and Assistant Director for Science and Innovation at the Far Eastern Federal University.
“We are sure that this is the right time for us to have made a strategic decision to put down roots in Vladivostok, which is expected to soon become the capital of the entire Far Eastern Federal District," said Sergey Pepeliaev, the Managing Partner at Pepeliaev Group. "I have known Natalya Prisekina for 10 years: she is an outstanding specialist and a gifted organiser”.
Please be reminded that Pepeliaev Group has already been operating a Far Eastern office, in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, since 2015. In Vladivostok, our firm has been working through an associated office with another law firm. However, to maximise the efficiency of project work and for our clients’ convenience, we have made a decision to open an office of Pepeliaev Group’s own.
