As a combination of enforcement services together with a kind of surveying actions, we provide services of security trustee in Russia. 

Such trust arrangement can be structured prior to a deal (in this case we set up an onshore-offshore based corporate structure), or in case of default situation, post-closing – where we look at enforcement or restructuring of the relevant debt.

The security trustees are usually employed where a security is taken over real estate objects or over objects which in the Russian law are called “enterprise” or "asset complex". In certain cases a security trustee is employed for the purposes of holding a pledge over shares in holding or operating companies - this opens opportunity for taking control over book-keeping of shares register. Given the market specifics, foreign investors usually wish to ensure that the security object is duly monitored and overviewed. Depending on the security object, a list of required actions is negotiated and applies within the security period.

The main issue with cross-border structures here is an interplay of foreign and Russian law. For instance, the Russian law, unlike the Anglo-Saxon law systems, does not provide for a concept of trust. However, we offer solutions which provide enough comfort for foreign investors and allow full representation and protection of pledgee’s interests in Russia.
