Konstantin graduated from the Law Faculty of St Petersburg State University, worked in Russian investment and construction, general contracting, territorial grid organisations, law firms, and for several years headed legal departments of companies implementing housing, business and industrial-energy construction projects.

Konstantin is a recognised expert in various fields of land, urban planning, investment and civil law, which allows him to take into account all possible legal and procedural risks in carrying out investment and construction activities and in supporting individual transactions.

In addition, the expert has considerable experience in representing developers and investors in court disputes related to investment and construction activity, obtaining land plots from the state property, as well as territorial grid organizations and applicants in court disputes related to technological connection to power grids. In particular, Konstantin was involved in the formation of the then little-used practice of compelling in court network organisations to perform contracts for technological connection to power grids in kind and won the claim of a client-developer to compel Lenenergo to connect the power installations of the applicant, issue documents for connection, apply voltage. Prior to the spread of this practice, it was believed that lawsuits to compel work were inadmissible.
