Legal Group«Paradigma» was established in 2005 by a group of qualified lawyers who had accumulated substantial expertise working for major companies and governmental authorities. Uninterrupted experience of business dealings with colleagues from Russia and abroad, representatives of Russian and international business community, foreign investors, convinced us that both Russian and international companies were in need of legal support on a level allowing them to identify unorthodox legal options for reacting to the most topical, contentious challenges presented by contemporary Russia.

The main competence of the company is client representation in all stages of pre-trial process and litigation before Russian arbitrazh courts of all instances, as well as before state authorities.

An important priority is the defence of our clients in economic disputes and other matters arising from business and entrepreneurial activity.

We have been involved in most business conflicts in Russia and act as litigation and strategy advisors to in-house legal departments of major Russian and international companies. In our years of experience, we have developed an efficient mechanism of working together with corporate legal departments, while most of our clients have a large in-house legal staff. The smooth interaction between in-house and Paradigma lawyers allows fast and seamless joint movement in coordinating our projects. In-house lawyers resolve day-to-day issues, while Paradigma lawyers work on projects requiring deep competencies in specific areas of law, and participate on a daily basis in court proceedings in a variety of business areas. An in-house lawyer, while highly qualified, is not essentially a stress manager, while Paradigma lawyers excel in resolving critical situations and court disputes.


How we are different from other litigators:

We follow the principle of fundamental analysis of the issue and offer a unique legal strategy. This equals our opponent’s inability to anticipate the selected method of defending our client’s rights and interests.

We ensure strict confidentiality by maintaining Chinese walls in all our projects.

Our team of professionals is proactive, strategically flexible and mobile.

Our reputation is unstained.

We are independent. We have no affiliation to our clients and are not part of any associations of consulting and legal companies.


Paradigma today is a united team of professionals offering advisory and legal services all over Russia and abroad. We both advise our clients on current affairs and support comprehensive projects, inter alia, those governed by multiple jurisdictions. The existence of full-fledged active representative offices in Germany, the United Kingdom, China, Kazakhstan and Bulgaria ensures efficient support to clients internationally and allows us to liaise with state and regulatory bodies as well as business communities. International projects are promoted with a team effort of lawyers, ensuring efficient collaboration of our professionals with the international legal community and foreign partners.
