Chadbourne Adds Leading Energy and Projects Lawyer in London and Moscow

Chadbourne & Parke LLP announced today that Andrei Baev has joined the firm as a partner in the Corporate Department, resident in the London and Moscow offices. Mr. Baev was previously a partner with Berwin Leighton Paisner and will serve as the Managing Partner of Chadbourne’s Moscow office, which opened in 1990.

“We have grown strategically by focusing on our firm’s strengths in the energy sector and in emerging markets, and we are committed to the Russian market, notwithstanding some of the recent economic challenges, and continue to see great opportunities there,” said Andy Giaccia, Chadbourne’s Managing Partner. “We are pleased to add Andrei to our firm, where he will not only contribute significant corporate experience and expertise in the energy sector, but also play an important role in strengthening the connection between our London and Moscow offices.”

“Andrei is a talented business developer who has grown strong relationships with senior management at some of the largest Russian companies, and his work and experience maps well with our geographic footprint as well as our practice strengths in energy and international projects,” said Ayşe Yüksel, Chadbourne’s EMEA Liaison Partner. “Not only will Andrei help grow our Russian practice, but he will also drive growth across the entire EMEA region.”

Mr. Baev specializes in international project finance transactions and international joint ventures. He advises on the development and financing of oil and gas upstream, midstream and downstream projects, independent power projects, nuclear power projects, mining, telecommunication and infrastructure projects throughout the world with a focus on emerging markets, particularly those in Russia and Eastern Europe. He has been involved in most of the high profile energy, oil and gas, and infrastructure projects in Russia, and he has recently led teams of lawyers on several large projects involving Russian state-owned energy companies.

“I am very excited to join Chadbourne, which has a market-leading reputation in the energy and infrastructure sectors and in emerging markets,” said Mr. Baev. “Chadbourne’s London and Moscow offices have strong and experienced teams capable of serving clients throughout the EMEA region, and I look forward to working with my colleagues here and around the world to grow the practice.”

Mr. Baev received a diploma jurist from Sverdlovsk Law Institute, an LLM from the UCLA School of Law, and a JSM and JSD from the Stanford University School of Law.
