About Us
Koblev & Partners cooperates with leading law firms in all major jurisdictions and has close contacts with the Russian offices of key foreign law firms. This allows the Firm to provide high-quality legal services to clients operating not only in Russia, but abroad as well.

The Firm's attorneys have an impeccable reputation and are recognized year after year as leaders of the profession by respected journals and rankings both at home and abroad.

In 2019, the most respected publication in the field, International Directory of Best Lawyers (USA), named Koblev & Partners Law Firm of the Year in Russia in the "Criminal Defense" category.
Established in 1999, Koblev & Partners is a high-caliber boutique law office that takes an individual approach to each case, always with personal contact between the client and the lawyer, and always while maintaining the highest level of confidentiality. Our principle practice areas include: criminal defense, advocacy of both victims and the accused in criminal cases involving allegations of corruption, fraud, and financial wrongdoing (white-collar defense), dispute resolution, advocacy at both the trial and appeal level, legal advice for individual and corporate clients.

Our team effectively handles cases of any level of complexity, including those that require not only expertise in criminal law, but civil and corporate law as well, not to mention bankruptcy, taxes, auditing, asset recovery, forensic examinations, and public relations.
Our Core Principles
Tradition: Koblev & Partners is one of the oldest law firms in modern Russia and strives to maintain continuity by observing a few time-honored principles of the legal profession established over a century ago: independence from state authorities, strict compliance with the law, maintaining an impeccable reputation, and providing the highest-quality legal services possible, while protecting client confidentiality.
Satisfied Customers Are the Best Advertising: We provide personalized and caring representation, while zealously fighting for our clients at every stage of their cases. As a result, our excellent name recognition comes mostly from word of mouth and from the recommendations of an elite client base that includes the heads of federal and regional executive authorities, members from the Federation Council, members of the Forbes ranking of richest Russians, CEOs of domestic and international companies, the leaders of strategic sectors of the Russian market, as well as large foreign corporations.
A Creative Approach to Problem Solving: obtaining outstanding results in the framework of the complex and intricate judicial system requires a law firm that is able to think outside the box.
A Standard of Excellence: "Pravo300", a respected independent publication that ranks law firms, consistently includes Koblev & Partners on its list of Russia's top firms. In addition, since 2014 the firm has been among top Russian law firms in terms of revenue per lawyer.
Partnering with clients: we strive to develop beneficial long-term relationships with clients, offering a wide range of legal services based on the needs of our clients.
Client Loyalty: Koblev & Partners represents only a limited number of clients, allowing us to focus our full resources on achieving the absolute best result in each case we are involved with.
International cooperation: Our attorneys have extensive experience representing foreign businesses in Russia. We are regularly engaged for legal advice on a wide array of issues by the Embassies of Italy and Germany. In addition, our team frequently cooperates with law firms in the United States, United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, the United Arab Emirates and other countries within the framework of joint projects based on the needs of specific clients.
Education and Academic Activity: Our attorneys are all graduates of leading Russian law schools and many members of our team combine the practice of law with teaching and research in their field of their specialization. Our firm also cooperates with many of Russia's leading academic institutions, including MSU, MSAL, MGIMO University, PFUR, HSE.
Constantly Expand Expertise: We strive to be a full-service criminal law firm and for years have been developing partnerships with the best specialists in the fields of forensic expertise, auditing, asset appraisal and recovery, public relations, and other areas. This allows us to quickly assemble a highly-qualified team to support even the most complex and multifaceted cases.
