Dentons adds to Russian practice

Law firm Dentons has appointed a new partner and a team of tax practitioners to its Russian operations, in a move that it says will boost its offering across a number of areas, including PPPs.

The firm has appointed Vasilii Markov as partner and head of the tax group in its St Petersburg office and he has brought with him seven tax practitioners.

He arrives from Deloitte, where he was head of the technology, media and telecommunications practice in the firm’s tax and legal department.

“His experience of successfully implementing large, complex projects for both businesses and government authorities in the CIS and his unique knowledge of tax incentives in Russia will certainly strengthen our tax practice,” said Victor Naumov, managing partner of the St Petersburg office.

“Vasilii will also help expand our tax offering in innovation, digital economy and public-private partnerships.”
