Buzko & Partners Becomes the Official Legal Counsel of the Rugby Union of Russia

Moscow, Saint Petersburg – We are happy to announce the start of our cooperation with the Rugby Union of Russia (RUR), in the course of which Buzko & Partners will provide informational and legal assistance to the RUR. 

It is a great honour for us to become a trusted partner of such an organization as the Rugby Union of Russia. We praise fundamental principles of rugby, including team spirit, integrity, discipline and respect, and consider it a privilege to be able to provide the RUR with all possible support in the development of this sport in Russia.

Cooperation with civil society organizations is a part of our strategy within the framework of corporate social responsibility. Moreover, it is even more pleasant to partner with the RUR as some lawyers from our own team used to play rugby. They will now have a chance to combine their professional skills and hobbies.

– Oleg Buzko, Managing Partner at Buzko & Partners 

Cooperation between the RUR and Buzko & Partners will contribute to the establishment of a solid legal basis to support joint projects in the fields of physical fitness and sports, as well as the development and promotion of rugby in Russia. We urgently needed to have as a partner a reputable law firm with experience in advising on issues related to sports and international relations.

– Dmitry Shmakov, Sports Director of the Rugby Union of Russia
