Eastern Europe and Central Asia

Companies with interests in Russia, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia face policy, government, regulatory, and other challenges that can adversely affect their investments. An effective response to these challenges requires a deep understanding of the political, social, and cultural realities of these countries. We take a comprehensive approach to helping clients do business in the region by complementing our legal services with broad policy and strategic advice.

Covington’s team of lawyers and policy advisors includes former U.S. Ambassadors, a former U.S. Cabinet Secretary, former Members of the U.S. Congress and European Parliament, and a former Chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission who was elected a Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

We have acted for clients with investments or other interests in Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, and other countries in the region, and have worked across a wide range of industries, including oil and gas, mining, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, financial services, consumer products, and logistics.
