Evgeny Maslennikov, Founder and CEO

Born in Moscow, Russia, Evgeny obtained his first law degree from Lomonosov Moscow State University where he concentrated on English and American law and legal history. This degree resulted in a thesis, that was awarded a distinction, on the origins of judicial precedent in common law. The work has been researched extensively with primary sources at Oxford University and the London School of Economics between 2004 and 2008.

Evgeny started his professional career in 2007 at Noerr LLP, a top ten European law firm and the second largest German law firm with headquarters in Munich, Germany. Evgeny’s practice included mergers & acquisitions, antitrust (competition) law, corporate and regulatory law. He advised Daimler, Siemens, Google, AMD, Motorola, Alcoa, Flextronics, Komatsu, McDonalds, Siemens, Alcoa, Beam Global, among other American and European corporations and investment groups on numerous transactional and compliance matters in Russia, Europe, and around the world. While at Noerr, Evgeny has published articles and book chapters on corporate law, mergers & acquisitions, antitrust law, and other subjects.

In 2013 Evgeny obtained a Master of Laws from the University of Chicago Law School, where he concentrated on business and finance and received an outstanding service award. In addition, he completed two more years of graduate studies at the University of Chicago in the fields of business, finance, management, and American culture. Evgeny continued his career in Chicago with several private equity groups where he analyzed hundreds and contributed to tens of investment mandates.

After founding HPIS in 2015, Evgeny moved to New York City and studied U.S. GAAP before dedicating himself to a full-time role at the company. Under Evgeny’s leadership, HPIS has developed expertise in a wide range of industries, asset classes, and transaction types and had grown to operate three offices in New York, Boston, and Los Angeles.
