Ernst & Young in Russia
In 1989 we became the first international professional services firm to establish operations in this country, and now we are the most diversified audit, accounting, tax and legal, and transaction advisory practice in Russia and the CIS. Ernst & Young's first office was located in the Okobank building, in a one-room office at Dobryninskaya Street, 7.
Since its opening more than two decades ago, our practice has grown from a single expert (who is still working in our Russia practice) to over 4,500 professionals, from one to nineteen offices in the CIS, and from one to more than 2,000 clients.
