BIRCH LEGAL advised Avito Work on the acquisition of HR Messenger

BIRCH LEGAL provided full scale legal support to Avito Work with the acquisition of a controlling stake in HR Messenger, a recruitment and staff adaptation automation service.

Avito Work is a top-notch employee recruiting service used by more than half of all employers in Russia.

HR Messenger is a comprehensive service from Kazakhstan that addresses the challenges of recruitment and personnel management. The company has been active on the Russian market just over three years and has already become a leader among HR chatbots in terms of the number of clients and employed candidates.

The BIRCH LEGAL team assisted throughout the entire transaction. The project was led by partner Anton Sitnikov and counsel Vera Gorbacheva. The deal has been closed at the beginning of December 2022.

Anton Sitnikov: “We are delighted to have assisted Avito yet on one more occasion and deeply appreciate the trust they have placed with us. We wish Avito and the expanding HR Messenger team further success in their business development and growth. We are happy to be a sought-after law firm, managing transactions both in Russia and internationally, including the CIS countries, as part of our clients' business expansion.”
