Washington, DC 20037
I joined the firm in 2013 and have been fortunate to practice corporate and business law with outstanding colleagues and remarkable clients. Prior to joining the firm, I was an in-house compliance director for a publicly-traded company.
I represent clients in commercial transactions, finance, corporate compliance, general business development, intellectual property matters and dispute resolution. Clients include domestic and international companies of various sizes and from a myriad of industries, as well as individuals in need of advice on legal issues pertaining to business matters.
My multicultural heritage and a Master’s degree in international business law from Washington College of Law help me understand and serve international clients with diverse cultures and backgrounds.
I am not a typical lawyer. My experience in entrepreneurship and law allows me to be effective in advising business clients, from starting up to executing strategies, to mergers and acquisitions. Having been a founder and entrepreneur myself, I understand business and inherent challenges of entrepreneurship. I know how to speak “business language” with clients – a skill that lawyers without hands-on business experience rarely acquire.
I spend my free time enjoying outdoor adventures and sports, including skiing and playing recreational soccer.
I am fluent in English and Russian languages, and also conversant in Kazakh.
