About us

We are an independent dispute resolution practice with a particular focus on commercial litigation, bankruptcy and restructuring, corporate conflict, white collar crime, and disputes with regulators and state authorities.

Our vision

A creative approach to problem-solving, a results-based management strategy, always striving to achieve excellence and offer top-notch legal advice to our clients – these are our core values and the underlining principles of our work.

The firm was established in October 2017 as an independent dispute resolution practice with a particular focus on commercial litigation, corporate conflict, white collar crime, disputes with regulators and state authorities, and criminal defense of businesses in Russia. We also have significant background in representing clients in bankruptcy proceedings, complex insurance disputes, and high-value construction disputes.

The firm is a spinoff of the Russian practice of a major global law firm. We launched RKP to be able to offer our clients a tailored approach to solving the most complex legal issues they are facing without the additional bureaucratic burden of a large firm, while maintaining competitive rates and boasting high level of partner involvement.
