FIDE welcomes ALRUD as Official Legal Consultant

The International Chess Federation (FIDE) and ALRUD Law Firm have signed an agreement stipulating that the law firm’s specialists will provide broad legal support on issues that emerge from the federation’s activities.

The agreement took effect on 1 January 2022, and it will be valid for one year but can be further extended.

For ALRUD, chess is not only a means of personal achievements and personal growth for its employees but also a resource that enables the law firm to rally interests around this sport at the corporate level and provide social assistance.

The law firm’s representatives regularly take part in various chess tournaments, including the first FIDE Online World Corporate Chess Championship, which took place in February 2021. ALRUD was also the highest donor during the fundraising that FIDE organized in parallel to that event, with the purpose of gathering funds to support social initiatives.

As part of its cooperation with FIDE, ALRUD plans to continue its active involvement in promoting chess and developing intellectual sports in Russia and abroad.
