Awara – Consulting Services and Business Process Outsourcing

It is a wise move to rely on expertise at the initial stages of enterprise development to identify any possible business risks. Pre-investment examination, and legal and financial due diligence is of the utmost importance in Russia. The experiences of our own clients show that a thorough groundwork helps to anticipate and avoid business roadblocks.Eugene Isaev, Executive Partner

Awara is the leading foreign owned business administration services provider on the Russian market, serving international and local organizations and individual entrepreneurs. Our services comprise a wide array of advisory packages for strategic business development, establishment and investment, and the implementation and execution of our advice, covering all areas of management consulting, accounting, audit, financial administration, recruitment and other HR services, and IT development.

Our history dates back to the beginning of Russian market reforms in the early 1990s when Jon Hellevig began practicing law in Russia. The corporate structure emerged in 1998 when Hellevig, Klein & Usov law practice was set up as part of Awara. Over the recent years, with the establishment of new reliable partnerships with companies from Brasil, India, China and South Africa it was decided to expand the legal practice under the new brand name — BRICS Consulting.

Our clients are at the heart of our work. Years of experience in successfully serving our multinational clients in Russia have enabled us to build business relationships resulting in mutual profitable growth. Our advantages over others in the industry include our international background and a superior knowledge of local practices, and the combination of all fields of expertise in an integrated act of professional services that meet our clients’ specific needs. As a result our clients receive truly comprehensive and cost-effective solutions that optimize their business processes and leverage their corporate knowledge, leading to increased competitive advantage, profitable growth and enhanced shareholder value.
