Antitrust Advisory is pleased to announce that it is expanding its practice with the joining of two new partners, Igor Panshensky and Alexander Egorushkin, both from Dechert in Russia.

 

 

Igor Panshensky, a renowned competition and corporate lawyer with over 20 years of experience in the Russian market, led previously the antitrust/competition practice of Dechert’s Moscow office. He advises the leading Russian and multinational industrial companies and financial institutions on a variety of competition and regulatory issues, including merger clearance, investigations and risk prevention, cartel and other proceedings, distribution and sales agreements, and general competition advice. He has extensive experience in the consumer products, energy, financial services, media and life sciences sectors. Igor is consistently recognised by Chambers Global and Europe and was recently named “a driving force” in competition law in Russia.

 

Prior to joining Antitrust Advisory, Alexander Egorushkin was a member of the competition and corporate practices at Dechert’s Moscow office, having also worked in DLA Piper and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer earlier. Alexander focuses his practice on mergers and acquisitions, structuring of international transactions from the perspective of competition and foreign investment regulation in sectors including consumer products, finance and petrochemical industry. He also advises on the trade and competition aspects of anticompetitive agreements and concerted actions, tender proceedings and dominance issues.

 

Igor and Alexander regularly work with the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Services (FAS) and their team was awarded for the contribution in the development of the Russian competition law.

 

Evgeny Khokhlov, partner at Antitrust Advisory, commented: “We are delighted that such experienced and highly respected experts as Igor and Alexander have decided to join our firm from a Moscow office of an international law firm. This decision meets our firm’s growth strategy and reiterates our commitment to offer the highest quality services. With their knowledge and leadership, Igor and Alexander are an excellent fit for our team. I am happy to welcome them on board and look forward to continuing our firm’s gradual development with them.“
