Amiran leads on corporate conflict resolution projects (including criminal-administrative proceedings and/or cross-jurisdiction disputes), corporate assets, dispute resolution as well as in the field of real estate assets for both national and foreign investors. He successfully defends his clients in criminal and commercial litigations and advises on the structuring of real estate assets in Russia.
In the beginning of 2000s Amiran was involved in complex disputes resolutions (including criminal and administrative) to protect real estate ownership from unfair merging and acquisition. Usually this was followed by complex cross-border proceedings: proceedings in Russia to protect the asset and proceedings abroad in order to protect the asset title, due in the main, to these titles structured abroad. Eventually these kinds of disputes towards the Russian assets influenced the development of a cost-effective and efficient asset and debt recovery tool for the banks, as a result of gathered experience and a wide network of reliable partners in various countries.
Currently, Amiran supervises the banking and finance practice at MGAP, with particular focus on asset tracing and debt recovery practice. He created and implemented an inexpensive and effective mechanism for the search and return of assets withdrawn from Russia. This mechanism includes MGAP’s own network of partners specialising in international asset tracing around the world. This allows effective and prompt recovery of assets after their disclosure. Currently, under Amiran’s supervision, MGAP has successfully completed work on a number of key projects for Russian banks as well as investment companies and private investors.
Amiran qualified as a Russian advocate in 2001.
