“Hi, I am Margarita Sologubenko. I am surprised and really honored to be named student of the month.
I am a private consultant and advise clients on M&A and JV issues. I also participate in research with a focus on data governance and commercialization.
Prior to that, I headed the M&A practice of one of the Russian legal firms for more than 10 years, where I led projects on legal structuring and investing in various jurisdictions.
To be honest, this is my second attempt here at Pericles.
I am grateful to the Pericles team for their support and attention, and to all my classmates for sharing their experiences and making a great company for classes.”
The first time I joined Legal Writing I was in 2013, but then the citation rules seemed so far from my day-to-day professional tasks that I didn't make it through.
Almost 10 years later, having completed a master's degree in IT/IP Law at the Higher School of Economics, I decided to give myself another chance with Pericles. Last summer I completed the Language of Contracts course and after that dived into the LLM.
Margarita joined our LLM program last fall and has received the top grades in both required courses in her first semester - Legal Writing I and Intro to American Law.
Congratulations, Margarita! Keep up the fantastic work!
