Principal Areas of Work
Litigation: Signature Litigation’s conflict free platform means that the firm is broadly unconstrained in who it can act for and against.

Main areas of practice include: banking and financial markets litigation; commercial litigation; trusts and funds management litigation; investor protection claims; and professional negligence litigation.

With one of the few senior English qualified Russian speaking litigators, Signature is able to offer clients in the region high quality advice which truly understands their needs.
