In the focus of attention – recipes for survival

The situation on the energy market today is heterogeneous: the market is becoming oversaturated, generation volumes are growing, the demand is going down, and consumers are expecting better conditions, while generating companies are thinking about preserving their financial positions and retaining the profitability of their activities.

Pravo.Ru-300: Among strangers – why Russian law firms do not lead in international rankings

In creating the first national ranking of law firms – the Pravo.Ru-300, analysts discovered a curious fact – the results of their market research of Russian law firms gave a very different picture from that painted by international rating agencies, where the traditional leaders are the ILFs (International Law Firms), while the RULFs (Russian Law Firms) are given much more modest spots. And indeed, many successful law practices were not even mentioned in these ratings. The editorial staff at Pravo.Ru decided to look into this matter and make a detailed investigation of the procedures used when developing international rankings.

Business in crisis: how Russian law firms have adapted to the new realities

Managing partners of the largest law firms told Pravo.ru how business should be conducted in the new economic realities, what practices will be in demand in the coming months, and how not to lose out, in terms of money, but rather improve performance, in spite of the “rabid printer”.
