For companies doing business in Russia, it is essential to use draft contracts in two languages, English and Russian, to help in negotiations with Russian companies, and also to provide legal certainty.
With this twofold objective in mind, we offer the most common draft contracts (Sale, Distribution, Commission, Supply, Consulting Confidentiality, etc.) for Russia, all adapted to the uses and practices of the Russian market and Russian business law.
The contracts are drawn up in two languages: English and Russian, and are provided in Word format. All word processing programs (Word, Pages, Open Office) include Russian, so it is relatively easy to modify, eliminate or insert text in the double version (English-Russian) offered.
Together with the contracts, we provide a Guide in English regarding Negotiation of Contracts in Russian, with guidelines on behaviour patterns and common practices of Russian companies when negotiating contracts with foreign companies.
These model contracts in English-Russian bilingual version can also be used in member countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) as the Russian is the official language. This is the case of countries such as Belarus, Kazakhstan and Moldova.
