At the end of 1993, a group of enthusiastic Moscow lawyers having broad practical, research, and educational experience (Sergei Chaadaev, Leonid Kheyfets, Andrei Konovalov, and Vladimir Kokhanov from various legal consultation offices of the Moscow Bar Association) decided to establish an advocates' bureau at the Moscow City Bar Association.
The Presidium of the Moscow City Bar Association approved this initiative on January 11, 1994, and the Department of Public and Political Relations of the Government of the City of Moscow registered Advocates' Bureau "Chaadaev & Partners" on February 18, 1994.
The Advocates' Bureau was intended to become an organization combining the academic and practical potential of the lawyers belonging to the Moscow Bar Association.
On June 9, 2003 on its basis the Moscow Bar Association "Chaadaev, Kheyfets and Partners" was created.
In fact, we were founded on February 18, 1994, which indicates our long and successful existence.
