Hogan Lovells’ Alexandra Dolinskaya qualifies into law firm’s Moscow office
Hogan Lovells has announced that Alexandra Dolinskaya, the first-ever English trainee solicitor to have been trained exclusively in Russia, qualified into its Moscow office on 1 November 2013.
Two years ago, Hogan Lovells was the first firm to obtain authorisation from the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) to take trainees exclusively in Russia.
The Moscow office has been responsible for all trainee recruitment direct to that office since gaining SRA authorisation two years ago and uses the same selection criteria as London, which requires a sharp intellect, strong drive and resilience and a high standard of professionalism.
Since March 2012, the Moscow office has taken on two trainees who will be able to qualify into corporate capital markets or litigation.
