To manage a large business is always a high-risk affair, which concerns not only financial results.

One of our key specializations is protection in cases involving economic and white-collar crimes. Since 2007, we have helped hundreds of entrepreneurs and top managers to regain their freedom, business and reputation, in cases that seemed hopeless.

Our main weapon in the protection of our clients is our invaluable experience, knowledge of the system from within, non-standard legal techniques, plus a preemptive and proactive approach. Our strategy is to occupy a dominant position and dictate our scenario of situation development in the following cases:

  1. Transition of economic dispute to a criminal sphere
  2. Illegal takeover of a business
  3. Criminal prosecution of the owner/company's chief executive
  4. Intense interest on the part of law enforcement agencies
  5. Provocations, defamation, blackmail, slander
  6. An intent to test a specific business
  7. Suspicions of counterparty’s bad faith

Facts are the only effective weapon in court. We seek, collect and legalize evidence that gives the edge in any legal dispute.

To accomplish this, we employ all possible legal methods to gather and analyze information, including independent financial investigations. If it is necessary to investigate outside the Russian Federation, our international partners are involved in solving the problem.

All A-PRO attorneys have invaluable experience in the law enforcement system of the Russian Federation. We have:

  1. Direct access to information sources – exclusive evidence and factual accuracy
  2. Forensic examinations performed by the best specialists – reliability, in the shortest period and any degree of complexity
  3. Involvement of niche expertise specialists, including IT (cyber investigations)
3 Distressed

The profit generator of your business always requires professional protection. Legal bans, encumbrances, business conflicts and seizure of profitable assets can instantly pass to the problematic category.

In this case, urgent and effective solutions are crucial, as a «second chance» may be unavailable.

Our clients always receive a specific and effective solution on recovery, or disposal, of problematic (distressed) assets.

Unique competencies, experience and established contacts with international partners allow A-PRO to successfully solve problems related to asset protection and asset-value conservation. Being experts in the field of the bankruptcy law, financial and analytical and legal spheres, we provide the best results in the following cases:

  1. Conflicts of owners, complicated by criminal proceedings
  2. Risks of bankruptcy, including the cross-border cases
  3. Threat of corporate raiding
  4. Aggressive actions of creditors
  5. Sabotage and unreliable management
  6. Reducing the security of accounts receivable
  7. Division of troubled family assets between spouses

Even the strong need help. When it seems an impasse, it is important to find a reliable partner capable to provide a clear and concrete plan to overcome the crisis.

We will share your economic and reputational costs of participation in legal conflicts and court proceedings. We will develop a winning strategy and involve courts and legal investors, if your own funds are not sufficient to implement it.

There are just three steps to solve the problem:

  1. Retire from conflict without losses, right now. We, or the involved investor, will bear all costs of successful completion of the dispute.
  2. Complete litigations as promptly as possible – this will enable you to preserve the value of assets, without resorting to credit resources.
  3. Return the investment at the increased value of the asset, or a share therein. The parameters of success are agreed upon in detail, and the agreements and confidentiality are strictly observed.

The conditions are as simple and transparent as possible:

  1. Your project has an economic value of at least 100 million RUB, a socio-economic significance and prospects for development in any industry.
  2. You are ready for an open, honest dialogue, without any ‘pitfalls’. It is our principle not to work with companies and projects that have unsavory reputation, as we strictly adhere to the norms of the legal ethics.

The decision lead time on partnership usually does not exceed two weeks.
