On 16 September, the prestigious contest "Best Legal Departments of Russia" held a traditional gala to announce and celebrate the winners in the 15 nominations, including for the Most Effective Government Relations.

This unique nomination for Russia allows both legal and government relations departments of companies operating in Russia to showcase their best practice in the government relations work over the previous year. Kesarev, the leading independent public affairs consultancy across Russia, Central & Eastern Europe, the post-Soviet region, Turkey and Israel, is the official sponsor and supports the nomination.

In 2021, the Expert Council of the competition distinguished the work of the Russian ride-hailing app Citymobil among eight companies short-listed for the award. The golden award in this nomination was presented by Evgeny Roshkov, Executive Partner, Kesarev to Anastasia Silchenko, Head of Government Relations at Citymobil.

The silver prize went to the logistics company Salair, while the bronze award was received by the world's leading producer of iron and steel NLMK Group.

Kesarev's sponsorship of the nomination allows to further strengthen the development of the government relations practice in Russia.
