The analysts and the Expert Council of Pravo.ru-300 praised Maxima Legal’s qualifications and professional experience in the fields of insolvency and commercial disputes.

The Pravo.ru-300 rating is designed to increase the transparency of the Russian legal services market. For 10 years, it has served as a benchmark in assessing the level and quality of law firms and a selection of contractors. The ratings are based on an assessment of the recent work of the law firms, as well as client reviews on the level of service and the cost and quality of legal services. To improve rating mechanisms, an independent Expert Council has been created, consisting of the heads of legal departments of large Russian and international corporations.
