As for us, we are eager to recommend Kopernick as experts on law of foreign countries not only because they achieve great results but due to their care for client’s budget.

Kopernick lawyers carefully examined our terms of reference, provided a written legal opinion and a step plan for restructuring with indication of specific statutory deadlines for each step to be taken and the documents to be signed as well as prepared all the necessary documentation under the foreign law. At the same time Kopernick lawyers used their good relations with competent authorities of a foreign jurisdiction and managed to complete all the tasks set several months before the agreed deadlines. We decisively recommend Kopernick experts to any organization that faced the necessity of group restructuring with the participation of foreign legal entities.
Meritservus engaged Kopernick lawyers in connection with the adoption in Russia of the legislation on taxation of income of controlled foreign corporations. Kopernick lawyers studied all the documents and provided us within quite strict deadlines with a legal opinion on the subject matter wherein not only did they reflect the key characteristics of the Russian legislation applicable to our Clients in Cyprus, but also provided us with a practical advice on compliance with such legislation. I am sure that in case of further need in the practical advice under the Russian legislation we will engage Kopernick again.
Kopernick lawyers were recommended to us by our business partners as experts on conclusion and performance of M&A transactions under the law of foreign jurisdictions.

The counterparty lawyers hardly had any commentaries with respect to the documentation drawn up by Kopernick lawyers as a result of which the transaction has been closed within 30 days from the day the Term Sheet was signed. No doubt – our best recommendations.

We definitely positively recommend Kopernick lawyers for the purpose of making cross-border transactions.
TATRA Ural is an authorized dealer and a service centre of Czech manufacturer TATRA. The reason why we applied to Kopernick international lawyers was legal support regarding creation of long-term legal relations between TATRA Ural and TATRA, Czech Republic.

STM required Kopernick’s services to double check the legal translation (from a foreign language into Russian) of the shareholders agreement and the articles of association of the foreign joint venture. After the text had been translated in a bureau of legal translations, it was still unclear and sometimes rather ambiguous while the same terms had been translated in a different way as if the text had been prepared by several different persons with no coordination of their actions with one another. As a result of a double check by Kopernick lawyers the text appeared to be very clear, logical and easily understandable, which was of more importance. We definitely recommend legal translation services of Kopernick to anyone.

Beyond all doubt – our best recommendations for Kopernick lawyers.
