Herbert Smith has bolstered its growing Moscow practice with the hire of a senior in-house lawyer from Renaissance Capital, one of Russia’s largest investment banks.
Evgeny Zelensky, a former Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton lawyer, was co-head of legal and compliance at Renaissance from October 2004 until June this year. He will join the capital markets group at Herbert Smith under Moscow head Allen Hanen.
Hanen said: “Evgeny is one of only a handful of Russian equity capital markets specialists with deep experience in this market.”
