How Georgy is building a better working world

“I am very proud of my role in the RAO UES reform in the mid-2000s. Both knowledge in diverse law fields and understanding of the laws of physics and business complexities were important. When you are a lawyer, it is important to understand that your advice should be not only right but also practical.”
