Together we are SILA
As of February 1, 2017, Legal Sport (Moscow, Russia) – the leader of the Russian sports law market – and Gradev Sports (Sofia, Bulgaria) headed up by Georgy Gradev – one of the strongest sports lawyers in Europe – are joining forces to work under a single brand «SILA International Lawyers». The decision to merge was made after many years of successful cooperation between the two companies.
The unified company will have a new website at silalawyers.com and a new logo. All cases and procedures previously handled by Legal Sport and Gradev Sports, will from now on be handled by SILA. The new company’s management will be carried out by three partners – Georgy Gradev, Mikhail Prokopets and Yury Zaytsev.
Unlike their predecessors, SILA will provide legal services on a wide range of issues, not limited to sports law only. In particular, the company has a new legal practice with experts working in areas such as contractual, criminal, corporate, administrative, urban planning and energy law. The new practice is headed up by a renowned lawyer Ekaterina Yakovleva.
