Inweasta, the international group of companies under the ownership of ex-A1 top executive Andrey Elinson, proudly announces the opening of its newest branch in Dubai. Strategically situated in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), the expansion marks a significant move to enhance the group's global footprint.

Andrey Elinson, the owner of Inweasta, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, "We are very pleased to announce the opening of our new branch in Dubai at a time when the UAE is witnessing robust economic growth. With its strategic location and business-friendly policies, DIFC provides an ideal platform for Inweasta to expand its operations and cater to a diverse clientele. Inweasta's Dubai branch, now fully operational, exemplifies the company's dedication to delivering an unparalleled client experience. The state-of-the-art facility is designed to ensure convenience for clients seeking a wide spectrum of services, including consulting, legal, and investment solutions."

Inweasta's Dubai branch offers a comprehensive range of services catering to the financial and industrial sectors. The group's core competencies include investment strategies, cross-border dispute resolution, litigation funding, and distressed asset management.

The decision to establish a presence in the dynamic business district of DIFC aligns with Inweasta's strategic plan to fortify its position in the Middle East. Dubai is strategically situated at the crossroads of Asia, Africa, and Europe, making it an ideal hub for international business. Dubai's regulatory structure fosters transparency and provides a legal framework that supports the operations of Distressed Asset Management (DAM) firms. Dubai is a major center for wealth management, boasting assets under management (AUM) exceeding $1 trillion. As investors face increasing financial challenges, the demand for DAM services is continuously rising. Inweasta’s Dubai branch will serve as a pivotal hub, providing investors across the region with enhanced access to company’s comprehensive asset management services.

Launched in 2022, Inweasta now boasts offices in Dubai, Paris, Hong Kong, Vienna, and Istanbul, offering a comprehensive range of services related to the resolution of complex disputes. This includes litigation funding, cross-border litigation management, investments in distressed assets, corporate finance, debts restructuring, inheritance structuring and protection, and mediation of disputes.

In the realm of litigation funding, Inweasta can provide financial resources to support legal proceedings in exchange for a share of potential settlements or judgments.

For cross-border litigation management, the company navigates complexities involving parties, assets, and subject matter across different jurisdictions.

Inweasta expertise extends to investments in distressed assets, strategically identifying undervalued or underperforming assets with the goal of turning them around or selling for profit.

The company excels in corporate finance and debts restructuring, providing advisory services to optimize financial structures for businesses facing difficulties.

In matters of inheritance, Inweasta ensures the efficient transfer and protection of wealth from one generation to the next, offering strategies for asset preservation and management.

Additionally, Inweasta acts as a neutral third-party mediator for dispute resolution, facilitating negotiations and ensuring the effective enforcement of settlement agreements.

With over 20 years of experience in private equity, strategic business development, and corporate management, Andrey Elinson, the owner of Inweasta, leads the team. In October 2023, Mr. Elinson transitioned from A1, a distinguished European private equity firm and litigation funder, to focus entirely on Inweasta. Having served as Managing Partner at A1 since 2018, Elinson now directs his efforts toward the growth and development of Inweasta. Prior to this, in 2014, he assumed the role of Director of Assets Management at the Alfa Group Consortium, a prominent Russian business entity. From 2007 to 2014, Andrey Elinson dedicated seven years to Basic Element, one of Russia's largest industrial conglomerates. He initially held the position of Director of Corporate Governance and Internal Control, later advancing to the esteemed role of Deputy CEO.

Throughout his career, Mr. Elinson held positions on the boards of directors of various significant companies, including AlfaStrakhovaniye, Ingosstrakh, Rosvodokanal, and En+ Group. In 2016, he ascended to become a Member of the Supervisory Board of X5 Retail Group, one of Russia's largest retail operators. In 2020, he gracefully retired from this Supervisory Board. Additionally, he served as a member of the supervisory board of the Alfa Group Consortium and A1 Investment Holding, both of which he concluded by 2020. His departure from A1 in October 2023 symbolizes his exit from all appointed roles, redirecting his focus exclusively to his personal investment enterprise, Inweasta.

Inweasta features a diverse international team of professionals, bringing expertise from various fields and countries. This diversity enables them to provide a comprehensive and adept approach, drawing on backgrounds in corporate, professional, and cultural realms. Inweasta's in-house capabilities, covering legal, financial, investments, security, PR, and more, position the company to efficiently handle intricate and/or international projects.
