About the event

Local management buy-outs and the sale of assets to Russian investors have been the most common approaches used by foreign companies withdrawing from the Russian market in recent times. However, the process, which is subject to approval by a special government commission, can be complex and lead to issues for the companies applying.
In our event, we will explain the main steps involved in structuring transactions and dividends payments and draw attention to the key and potentially problematic issues that may arise during the process, such as obtaining the necessary approvals for the transaction in accordance with recent changes to Russian legislation.

We'll also be shedding light on practical cases for obtaining the necessary government and Presidential approvals with our guest speakers, Vitaly Zhigulin and Philippe Perogier, from Kesarev.
