About the firm

Personal and Property Legal Protection Center «Aegis», corp. was set up in 1997 by the business team of associates Roman Minenko and Alexander Voskoboinikov, both being highly qualified experts in their professional fields: law and economics respectively. Aegis was created as one of the first Russian pioneer-companies specializing on rendering services in the sphere of legal support and book-keeping to large and middle-sized foreign enterprises performing commercial activity in Russia. Dynamic and successful activity of the company in this sphere quite soon led «Aegis» to status of a full member of the Russian-German chamber of Commerce that was obtained by the company in 2001.

The company kept growing and developing along with the Russian economics. Within 14 years of close cooperation the partners have managed to unite a team of talented lawyers and accountants under their «aegis». Most of our experts speak fluent English and/or German languages. Each of these experts can successfully cope with the most irregular and unusual situations. Still, we prefer to deal with the most complicated and tangled issues jointly. Being a well-cooperating team under the leadership of our managing partners, our advisors complement each other professionally. Such teamwork guarantees not only a comprehensive approach to the respective matter but also a full-scale expertise of the situation at hand and development of efficient recommendations on solution of any problem.

And that is our ability, to be client-oriented (i.e. to consider our clients’ interests) in solution of various complicated matters that has always attracted to us such well-known domestic and foreign enterprises as DHL, Kuehne+Nagel, Bosch Rexroth AG, Aerocomposit, Lengidroproekt, Volkswagen AG and other companies that have entrusted us management of their projects in Russia over years.

We are glad to acknowledge that in each and every certain case we could offer the best of all possible solutions to our clients, reach the desirable results and justify the clients’ trust in our company.
