About Us

Rakurs Legal Partnership was founded in 2008 by alumni of the Faculty of Law of Lomonosov Moscow State University. It is our mission to help clients avoid and resolve business issues through top-notch legal advice and professional legal representation. At Rakurs we aim to protect the rights, freedoms and interests of individuals and corporate entities, and to ensure access to justice. Our lawyers adhere to the professional code of ethics as well as the standards of conduct of leading international law firms. The excellence of our legal services is based on our high internal standards. We pride ourselves on assessing each issue from all possible angles and taking an individual approach to every client. Why did we choose the name Rakurs? Rakurs (in Russian Ракурс, from the French raccourcir) means “foreshortening”, a technique used to depict an object receding into the distance or background. It depends on the viewer’s perspective and the object’s spatial positioning. Our work is dynamic in nature and involves viewing a problem from various legal perspectives, some of which might not be immediately apparent. This approach is no accident, and it is bound by the established rules and traditions of law, just as foreshortening is a technique that is bound by the rules of geometry.
