Gherson Solicitors LLP Bolsters its Sanctions Practice
Leading London-based independent law firm Gherson Solicitors LLP (Gherson) continues to bolster its sanctions practice with the appointment of solicitor, Liliya Akhmadullina, to the dynamic firm.
Liliya joins Gherson from Peters & Peters’ business crime department where she assisted on multi-jurisdictional compliance and sanctions cases.
Prior to joining Peters & Peters, Liliya was principal analyst and head of the Business Behaviour Team at Vigeo EIRIS, in London (now Moody’s). Here, she advised a wide range of multinational corporations and institutional investors on their responsible investment strategies and risks, compliance procedures, and regulatory regimes. A dual qualified lawyer in England & Wales and Russia, Liliya has also held the roles of legal counsel at the United Nations Development Program’s project in Moscow, and lawyer for a human rights NGO in the Czech Republic.
Liliya joins the rapidly expanding firm after a series of strategic hires over recent months including the appointments of Hava Rosenfeld, Cong Gao, Mayuri Manjula, and Kamilla Keleman who joined the White-Collar Crime, Litigation & Arbitration, and UK Inbound Immigration teams respectively.
Commenting on Liliya’s appointment, Roger Gherson, founding partner at Gherson Solicitors, said:
“Liliya is a welcome addition to our dynamic and growing firm. Her vast experience advising individuals, businesses, and governments on their multi-jurisdictional compliance and regulatory matters is an indispensable asset to both our clients and colleagues alike. We look forward to having her get stuck in and being part of our expanding team.”
