U.S. Business and the Russian Mob

Published: July 8, 1994

"If there was ever a sense that we were to be left alone, it is clearly gone now," said Richard A. Conn Jr., a lawyer with Latham & Watkins, a firm here that represents several major international corporations doing business in Russia. "I still consider it safe for Westerners to work here, and I encourage them to do so all the time. But the growth of the mob has been dramatic, and there just isn't a pass for American businesses from the mafia anymore."

Mr. Conn and most other foreign executives interviewed say that official corruption, an irrational system of levying and collecting taxes, and a lasting mistrust of profit still hurt American businesses here far more than crime does. And the executives note that no representative of any American company is known to have been killed by the mob, although such killings occur almost weekly among Russian businessmen, especially bankers.

Hard Choices, Opportunities Lie Ahead for Nation, State

Published: January 03, 1993

"The really big worry is Russia. In the former Soviet Union, "the economy is breaking down," says Richard Conn, a managing partner of the Moscow office of Latham & Watkins, a Los Angeles law firm.
Conn, who helped draw up plans for the economic reforms presented by Finance Minister Yegor Gaidar--whom the Russian parliament rejected as prime minister--says inflation now is 1,000%. The ruble has gone in one year from 60 for $1 to 450 for $1. These figures work out to an inflation rate of 650%.
Unless Russia can pull out of such difficulties, strong men--nationalists, old Communists--will take back power, Conn predicts. Economic and political reforms would be curbed.
Russia would present a tougher face to Europe--and a foreign policy problem that would divert President Clinton from plans for the U.S. economy."

Regions Wrest Powers from Kremlin

Published: May 25, 1993

For foreign investors, nothing is clear: whose laws to obey, which taxes to pay, whose claims of ownership to believe.

"You don't really know on any given day to what degree the laws of Russia are going to be honored," said Richard Conn, an American lawyer in Moscow who advises American firms and the Russian government. "It creates interesting legal issues."

But Conn and many others see the regional power grab as a generally healthy response to decades and even centuries of heavy-handed bureaucratic control from Moscow. "Our early history was a process of the states surrendering power to the central government," Conn said. "Here, because of this nation's strange history, regions are wresting power away from the center, as individuals wrest power from government."

Challenges of Implementing a New Legal System

By Richard Conn



That night I wound up -- I don't know how, probably something to do with getting that drink -- in the motley company of a friend, California congressman Chris Cox; Cox's friend Richard Conn, who's an American attorney now weed-whacking Russian legal thickets; and a friend of Conn's, Russian chess champion Gary Kasparov. Kasparov, who at his own expense had been stumping for Boris Yeltsin, took us to the campaign headquarters. This was a big, sorry slab of a modern hotel, a place where visiting Commie dignitaries used to be parked. There weren't any flags, signs, spotlights or festoons of bunting outside, just some police with machine guns. The lobby was large, dim, empty and covered in blocks of marble that didn't match up along the edges. Nowhere to be seen were crowds of bustling hangers-on, self-important minor functionaries, frantic strategists, hyperventilating pollsters, fuzz-faced volunteer kids or scurrying, ferretlike George Stephanopoulos characters. The place seemed to be made of American political anti-matter...
