Milano, 1 February 2019 - Pavia e Ansaldo, in line with its international orientation and strong presence in the Russian Federation since 1998, has decided to expand its activities to the countries of Central Asia, in particular Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan.

This evolution will lead to the expansion of the existing Desk Russia into Desk Russia and CIS countries, with an aim to advise Italian clients wishing to undertake business not only in Russia but also in some of the neighbouring countries.

Kamilla Khamraeva joins the Desk Russia and CIS Countries as Of Counsel and will work in close cooperation with Of Counsel Daniele Pascale, who is based in the Moscow office of Pavia e Ansaldo.

Kamilla Khamraeva, an Uzbek lawyer with Russian educational background has consolidated experience in commercial law and project financing. Kamilla has assisted clients mainly in Uzbekistan but can count on a successful track record also in consulting foreign companies that launched their business in Turkmenistan.

In-depth knowledge of the Russian market combined with high level skills acquired and tested over time “in the field” have enabled us to build a solid connection between business activities in Italy and Russia. After the establishment of our Desk China, the decision of Pavia e Ansaldo to further expand its activity into the region located at the very heart of the New Silk Road represents a further enlargement of the firm’s presence in the Asian continent. Kamilla joins our Milan team and will work in close collaboration with our Russian offices as well as with the leading regional law firm with multiple offices in the region. All this will allow us to offer consolidated support to Italian companies interested in expanding their activities in some of the most promising countries of the CIS area"- commented Pavia e Ansaldo partner and head of the Desk Russia and CIS countries, Vittorio Loi.

"This new task is a stimulating challenge for me that will allow me to provide clients with tailor-made assistance based on an intercultural approach, acting as a bridge between Italy and the reality of the countries more familiar to me" - commented Kamilla Khamraeva, Of Counsel of Pavia and Ansaldo.

Pavia e Ansaldo’s Desk Russia, led by Vittorio Loi, relies on a team dedicated to clients wishing to undertake or consolidate business in Russia and CIS countries as well as to satisfy the increasing demand of Russian clients for assistance in Italy. The team, which is working in close cooperation with the Moscow and St Petersburg offices of Pavia e Ansaldo and the most reputable local law firm in Central Asia, offers its expertise and advises mainly in the areas of corporate and commercial law, employment law, real estate and construction, tax and dispute resolution and today is getting ready to extend, at least in part, this know-how also to the countries of Central Asian, offering solutions which take the country-specific elements of this area into account.
