Our Mission

We strive to provide our clients with legal security, to protect their interests and to foster a legal environment based on fairness, knowledge and trust.

Our Structure:

The Moscow Bar Association “Law Firm «YUST»” (Moscow, Novosibirsk, Russia);

Our Aims

Our main aim is to provide our clients with prompt and professionally-executed legal services. In order to provide such services, a number of other objectives must be achieved. These include:

  • effective management of the firm, to ensure that pertinent legal advice is provided to all private individuals and legal entities;
  • provision of an on-going program of additional training and skills-updates for the benefit of all our professional staff and their legal assistants.

We strive to continuously expand the geographical range of our services.

In addition, YUST seeks, in the public interest, to promote important social outreach such as:

  • the on-going development of legal institutions, for example the professional community of lawyers;
  • the proliferation of the rule of law and the raising of the levels of legal awareness within the community, and society in general.

Our Principles

An advocate is an independent, professional legal advisor. Independence is the basic principle underlying the professional duties of an advocate – a principle embodied in the Russian federal law “On advocacy in the Russian Federation”. Advocates are obliged to avoid any attempt to restrict their independence and are bound to observe a strict code of ethics. The professional activities of YUST are also based on this principle. Our first duty, with respect to any client, is to ensure that no conflict of interests exists, and that none can arise. Our adherence to this principle ensures objectivity and maintains independence.

We provide legal services and advice of the highest quality. All our partners, lawyers and counsellors have graduated from the leading universities and institutes of law in Russia and abroad. We provide our team members with the opportunity to continuously develop their professional skills. YUST employees attend regular training courses, both in Russia and in other countries, to upgrade their professional skills. The firm’s partners and associates are actively involved in lecturing and research activities in Russia’s leading law schools. Our experts have extensive knowledge and experience of a diverse range of legal subjects. This allows YUST to be consistently successful in resolving difficult legal cases and winning complex lawsuits for our clients.

The only position worth adopting is one based on legal grounds. Law is our business and is what we offer our clients, together with its qualified interpretation. We are always completely fair and candid with our clients. When putting forward proposals to resolve a legal issue, we always keep the client fully informed as to the potential risks and prospects of success, whilst at the same time taking into account judicial trends and pending changes in legislation. We take our responsibilities with respect to the client very seriously, a factor acknowledged in the high standard of legal services we provide.
