Norton Rose Fulbright has announced it is "winding down [its] operations in Russia and will be closing [the] Moscow office as quickly as [possible], in compliance with professional obligations."

"The wellbeing of our staff in the region is a priority," the firm noted. "We thank our 50 colleagues in Moscow for their loyal service and will support them through this transition."

The firm informed it is not accepting any further instructions from businesses, entities, or individuals connected with the current Russian regime, irrespective of whether they are sanctioned or not, adding that, while it is continuing to review exiting from existing work where professional obligations allow, "where we cannot exit from current matters, we will donate the profits from that work to appropriate humanitarian and charitable causes."

The announcement follows after Linklaters and Borenius also announced closing their Russian offices in Moscow and Saint Petersburg (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on March 7, 2022).
