Pavel Bakoulev scholarship

As part of DLA Piper’s Break Into Law global initiative, we award an annual law student scholarship to the winner of an essay writing competition and spoken presentation by students from Lomonosov Moscow State University.

Internship opportunities

We offer internship opportunities for law students from leading Russian universities. After successfully completing their internship, students are offered a permanent job as lawyers in our Moscow or St. Petersburg offices.

Our achievements

Professional responsibility and ethics

Together with partners, we run annually a four-day training course on professional responsibility and compliance to help instil a commitment to legal ethics in the next generation of Russian lawyers.

Recognised expertise

In 2019 our Transport practice was ranked as the best in Russia by Chambers Europe and Legal 500 EMEA, for the fifth and sixth consecutive years respectively.

League leader

According to Mergermarket’s 2018 league tables, DLA Piper was number one in Russia for Merger & Acquisition deal volume.

Star performers

Three of our partners in Russia are recognised as Acritas Stars. The prestigious Stars programme was developed to provide a source of highly recommended lawyers, based purely on client feedback and free from the influence of law firms.
