Russian legal matters


DELACOUR has more than 25 years' experience in Russia, where we have been based since 2000 with own office in shared office facilities with the Russian law firm Avista.

We have chosen this model in order to provide our clients with the best results by combining our Danish pragmatic and systematic approach and experience with the local Avista's detailed knowledge of local legislation and practice, network and influence on local decision-makers.

DELACOUR and the client will typically define the relevant problems and wishes together for an analysis of the means necessary to solve and obtain such wishes. It often turns out that the typical Scandinavian lack of orthodoxy towards the task entrusted to us by the client leads to the conclusion that the client must choose another solution than initially contemplated.  

When performing the task in question, it is our experience that knowledge and respect of cultural differences, and a reality which in many ways differs from the one in Denmark, are important - and often neglected - preconditions for the achievement of satisfactory results.

Our advisory services in Russia include:

  • Establishment
  • Project development
  • Acquisition of and merger with existing companies

We also assist in most other areas of commercial law, including:

  • Cases concerning collection and securing of outstanding amounts
  • Cooperation with local partners

We prefer to take part in the commercial negotiations to obtain an optimal solution to our client, and in order to avoid the cultural and legal pitfalls that often prevent it. To avoid subsequent disputes, we prefer to draw up the contract and to be project coordinators when obtaining relevant documentation.   

Apart from being result and solution-oriented advisors to our clients, DELACOUR participates as a constructive project manager at all stages and in a close dialogue with the client and any other advisors - especially accountants, financial advisors, consultants and local employees. 

As part of our assistance, we are able to provide apostille services for documents, translation and interpretation during negotiations, etc.            

Our clients will further benefit from our many Russian speaking lawyers in Denmark as well as Danish and English speaking lawyers in Moscow.
