Market report: Russia and the CIS – The new silk road

While deal flow in Russia remains hampered by sanctions over the war in eastern Ukraine, local firms have made efforts to plan around these and develop new products and services to compensate for a decline in traditional mandates. The Russian market is also beginning to attract considerable volumes of work from the broader CIS region as well as Asia.

After promoting three new partners in 12 months, Russian firm Pepeliaev Group has now reached 24 partners globally. Sergey Pepeliaev, the firm’s managing partner, argues that the Russian market is becoming more sustainable and steadily diversifying.
