Simmons downsizes in Moscow

Simmons & Simmons has reshaped its Moscow office by sending two of the four partners back to London and laying off three associates. Project finance partner David Nelligan and corporate partner Isabella Roberts have returned to London, but will continue to work on Russian mandates. The reshuffle leaves two partners in Moscow: Konstantin Orlov in energy and infrastructure and office managing partner Tony Smith. The associate redundancies took place last month.
