Contract law is one of the fastest developing areas of practice. First of all, cause the Russian Federation Civil Law has been undergoing changes; secondly, because of the permanently changing judiciary practice.
It is very important to know that if you use a contract template that was produced, for example, half a year ago, it may not wholly protect your interests and even contradict the Russian legislation.
One should also realize that contract law is a highly-specialized area and some law firms may not have it as a separate branch of practice. This approach may have a negative effect on the result of work. Contract law is a specialization of a lawyer who focuses on this sphere only.
