His practice is focused on international debt and equity capital markets, M&A and sovereign finance matters, and international arbitration for disputes involving finance and foreign investment. Winston & Strawn’s managing partner Tom Fitzgerald said Yakovlev’s hire would enable the firm to services increased corporate finance activity from emerging markets.
