FBK Legal’s Partner Alexander Ermolenko has spoken at the Legal Week, an event organized by the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation for leading lawyers to share their best practices, real-life cases and nuances of the profession.
His speech was dedicated to the profession of a corporate lawyer who specialises in mergers and acquisition. According to Alexander Ermolenko, M&A is a very interesting and promising field but at the same time it is very difficult and requires a lot of special skills. He shared his personal experience to explain which challenges a lawyer may face.
“On the whole, when deciding which career path to choose it is important for a lawyer — like any other specialist — to go for a job that suits them the most, rather than for the most prestigious one,” he said.
The Legal Week is organised by the Financial University for students to learn about different law careers.
