About the firm

Andrey Gorodissky & Partners law firm was founded in 1992 by practicing lawyers who for many years had been working in state foreign-trade organizations, legal departments of government ministries and research institutes in Russia and abroad.

From the start we were prepared to work with foreign investors. This required us to learn quickly how to provide legal services in compliance with international standards, to understand profoundly clients’ objectives and to meet the highest demands of legal professionalism that major Western companies and corporations have.

Through over 20 years of service, we have earned a spotless reputation. Today AGP has over 500 clients, with two thirds of them being major U.S., Western European and South-East Asian companies.

We provide legal assistance to corporate and private clients across all areas of law involving business activities both in Russia and abroad.

AGP lawyers have full legal knowledge relevant to such industries as smelting, automobile manufacturing, IT, construction, medical, food, trade, and consumer goods.

We adhere to the highest standards of legal ethics based on the historical traditions of Russian legal practice as well as those observed in the U.S. and Western European attorney communities. Moreover, these principles and rules are guaranteed in our partnership agreement.

Our lawyers are responsive, thoughtful, ethical, and vigorous attorneys having deep understanding of business needs of our clients and the markets in which they are competing. AGP has a unique team of professionals whose know-how and experience have been repeatedly put to the test by the toughest cases the legal profession has to offer and have earned our clients' gratitude.

We always pay special attention to building an efficient team of lawyers so as to provide our clients with seamless representation across various practice areas and comprehensive legal solutions.

AGP attorneys take an active role in the Non-Commercial Partnership “Promotion of Corporate Legislation Development”, founded by Russia's leading law firms, and in the Non-Commercial Partnership “Competition Promotion”, which brings together the best antimonopoly legislation professionals in both Russia and abroad.

AGP maintains close correspondent relations with leading law firms in Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Belarus, Germany, USA, Cyprus, Australia, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, Italy, and a number of other countries, which makes legal assistance to our clients more effective.
