BGP Litigation is happy to announce the opening of an Aviation & Asset Finance practice, led by Counsel Vladislav Rikov. Before joining BGP Litigation, Vladislav worked in the finance practice of the international law firm Clifford Chance and for a world-leading aerospace manufacturer Rolls-Royce.
The practice’s team comes from international law firms, airlines, manufacturers of transport equipment, and public authorities in the sphere of transportation, which allows them to successfully advise clients on a wide range of aviation-related legal issues, as well as on the issues of financing transportation and private assets.
“We are excited about developing our industry expertise - this helps us better understand the market, the client’s concerns, and the regulations, improve the quality of our services and demonstrate strong performance. The opening of a new specialised practice falls in line with the current needs of the market and BGP Litigation’s strategy of development towards becoming a one-stop shop law firm with a comprehensive approach to addressing the business goals and legal concerns of our clients. It is the next milestone in the firm’s development,” says BGP Litigation Partner Timur Unarokov.
“I am delighted to join BGP Litigation’s thriving and rapidly growing team. The transportation sector of Russia’s economy is undergoing an unprecedented phase of its history, and that specifically concerns the aviation sector. Nevertheless, turbulent times also entail new opportunities for the market participants. The joint experience of my team and the team of BGP Litigation will allow us to offer clients comprehensive support on aviation matters, as well as on the matters of financing transportation and private assets,” BGP Litigation Counsel Vladislav Rikov comments.
