Tamara Vasiljeva, Associate, Corporate, Fieldfisher

I am an associate in the corporate team and I specialise in corporate and commercial work for domestic and international clients. I joined Fieldfisher in 2013 as a newly English qualified solicitor, having graduated in London and trained with one of the City law firms. I specialise in and regularly advise clients on mergers and acquisitions, including private and public M&A and cross-border transactions, as well as joint ventures, corporate restructurings, corporate governance and general corporate and commercial matters.

I am also part of the firm's Russia & CIS Group and have extensive experience advising clients from the CIS region, particularly Kazakhstan and Russia with a particular focus on energy and natural resources sector.

My recent projects include advising JSC KazMunaiGas Exploration Production, the largest listed oil and gas company in Kazakhstan, on a number of M&A and joint venture projects, including a sale of 49% interest in JSC Karpovskiy Severniy to MOL Group and new joint venture arrangements with MOL Group and First International Oil Corporation Group in respect of the production stage of the Fedorovskoe oil field in Kazakhstan. I have also advised on general corporate matters and issues relating to the listing of GDRs of JSC KazMunaiGas Exploration Production on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange and the company's other corporate governance and shareholding matters. I have also assisted in advising the shareholders on the sale of 95% of JSC Maten Petroleum, a Kazakh-listed producer of crude oil, for a figure in excess of $500m.
