The Athena Law Firm provides comprehensive legal and tax advice to a diverse Western and Russian clientele, including large, medium-size and small publicly and privately held business entities in a variety of industries: financial services, real estate, wholesale and retail, oil & gas exploration (exploration, refining, production and marketing), metals production and trade, venture capital, computer software development and technology transfer.
In each of these areas the Firm has substantial and specialized experience. The Firm maintains close working relationships with attorneys specializing in other practice areas, including banking, patent and insurance law and criminal litigation. The Firm's attorneys provide the highest quality service in a prompt and cost-effective manner. Services are structured to the specific requirements and concerns of each client. We encourage communication from our clients to make sure that we are fulfilling their precise needs. The Firm's partners have experience of working for Russian and Western law Firms and companies and are fully capable of working both with Western and Russian clients. We believe that the expertise of the Firm's attorneys within our practice areas, in conjunction with our being a relatively small Firm focused on productivity and cost control, enhances our ability to achieve our clients' objectives in Russian and CIS markets.
