Leading Tax Partner Joins Hogan & Hartson to Launch Moscow Tax Practice

 In Uncategorized

Hogan & Hartson LLP has expanded its Moscow operations with the addition of prominent tax partner Ilya Rybalkin. Rybalkin, who has extensive experience advising on Russian and international tax issues in cross-border mergers and acquisitions; corporate restructurings, including pre-listing restructurings; financial projects; and private equity and real estate fund structuring; is initiating the firm’s Moscow tax practice.

Rybalkin’s practice focuses on international and domestic tax issues, with an emphasis on tax efficient cross-border financing structures. He advises major Russian companies on structuring their international operations, and he advises international companies on the planning and implementation of tax-driven investment structures in Russia. Rybalkin also advises clients in a wide range of industries, including oil & gas, downstream, automotive, real estate, and food.

Peter Pettibone, managing partner of the firm’s Moscow office, is enthused about the move. “Ilya is an excellent addition to Hogan & Hartson, both personally and professionally. Previously, he worked on some tax matters for our firm’s clients. There are synergies in better serving those clients, as well as reaching out to new ones.”

“By extending our tax capabilities to Moscow, Hogan & Hartson now is one of the few global law firms to offer integrated international legal and tax advice in multi-jurisdictional transactions,” said J. Warren Gorrell, Jr., chairman of Hogan & Hartson.

Rybalkin joins from the Moscow office of a Munich-based international law firm. With his German business background and German language capabilities, he looks forward to working closely with the firm’s Berlin and Munich offices.

Commenting on his arrival at the firm, Rybalkin said, “I’m happy to have the opportunity to use my energy and experience in the highly professional and yet friendly environment of a truly international firm having strong tax capabilities in the United States, UK, and other European countries.”

Rybalkin has been recognized for his accomplishments as a tax lawyer by the European Legal 500.
