PwC Legal fielded a strong delegation, led by Legal Practice Leader Yana Zoloeva, at the IV St Petersburg International Legal Forum, the premier annual event for Russia’s legal community, on 18-21 June. Also representing the law firm were Yana Proskurina, Partner and Head of the Tax and Customs Dispute Resolution practice, and Evgeniy Gouk, PwC Legal’s St Petersburg Legal Practice Leader and Head of the IT and Intellectual Property practices.
In addition to speaking at and sitting on formal discussion panels, the PwC Legal delegation had a very busy agenda during the Forum, including holding meetings with current and potential clients, participating in roundtables and plenary sessions, and taking part in the awards ceremony for winners of the IX annual contest Russia’s Best Legal Departments-2014. As well, Yana Zoloeva appeared as an expert at the session on Compliance: Global Legal Trends and Prospects.
We’d like to thank the Forum organisers and the Russian Corporate Counsel Association (RCCA) for this wonderful opportunity to meet and exchange new ideas with our peers in the legal community!
