On 15 May 2014, Beijing-based attorney Cai Jiefeng from Dacheng was granted a lawyer’s licence from the Ministry of Justice of Russia.
Russia has installed a registration system for foreign lawyers practising law on its land to cope with the ever-increasing internationalisation of its own legal market. In 2014, Russia’s Ministry of Justice released a new version of licences to replace the old ones.
Jiefeng is one of the first foreign lawyers having been granted such licences in Russia. He is also one of the founders of Dacheng’s Moscow office. The acquisition of such a licence will facilitate clients doing business with or in Russia and help strengthen Dacheng’s Global Legal Services Network.
