Watch tradition

For over a decade, Vasiliev, Klein, Usov & Litvinov has consistently adhered to the tradition – promoting a valuable lawyer to the status of a partner, the company presents him with a pocket watch. 

We value this tradition and see in it a reinvention of the well-known principle of carpe diem and a symbol of the fact that from now on the partner is entrusted with the clients’ time. Obtaining all the advantages of the partnership, the lawyer takes over responsibility as well – for caring, ethical, efficient and economical management of clients’ time.
