Haynes and Boone Opens New Office In Moscow

April 05, 2005

DALLAS – Haynes and Boone LLP, an international corporate law firm, announced Monday it has opened a new office in Moscow, answering a call from long-term client demand.

Haynes and Boone partner Doug Stinemetz and associate Daria Nosova will launch the Moscow office, which will have a primary focus on the oil and oilfield services industry, but also provide legal services to many other industries. The office is located at Bolshoy Gnezdnikovsky per. 1, bldg. 2, 7th floor, 125009 Moscow, Russia.

“The decision to found the office stems from client demand for services there,” said Stinemetz, who has split his time between Moscow and Houston in recent years. “We expect to expand the office as demand for our legal services increases.”

Stinemetz helped pioneer negotiations for new ventures in the former Soviet Union, including ventures in Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkmenistan. He has worked in recent years on many corporate acquisitions, numerous oil exploration ventures and several startup operations in the region. He has been active in transactions in the former Soviet Union since 1989.

Nosova has worked extensively in the Ukraine and other parts of the former Soviet Union.  A Russian and Ukrainian attorney, she was formerly an in-house counsel for a prominent Ukrainian airline. Her practice is primarily oil and aviation related.

“Expanding to Moscow presents a great opportunity for the firm to build on current relationships and our extensive experience there,” said Robert Wilson, managing partner of Haynes and Boone.  “Russia’s rise as an energy and economic power is full of potential.”

Haynes and Boone, LLP is an international law firm with 10 offices throughout Texas, Washington, D.C., Mexico City, Moscow and New York, providing a full spectrum of legal services to clients around the world. With more than 450 attorneys, Haynes and Boone is ranked among the largest law firms in the nation by National Law Journal.  The firm has been recognized as one of the "20 Best Law Firms to Work For" (Vault.com, 2004), one of the “Best Corporate Law Firms in America” (Corporate Board Member Magazine, 2001-2004) and recipient of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association’s 2002 Thomas L.
