These court cases made my flesh creep because the Russians have so much money they can afford to hire the most expensive lawyers for as long as it takes to make their case. Thankfully, Prevezon had to pay a large fine in the end, but must have spent even more on lawyer's fees to try and disprove the case against them.

This was already the world Bill Browder lived in as a founder of Hermitage Capital Management, a successful hedge fund based in Moscow in the early 2000s. He has recounted those years in his bestselling 2015 exposé Red Notice, some of whose content overlaps with this book, mainly the murder of his lawyer Sergei Magnitsky in a Moscow prison in 2009. Browder had been expelled from Russia four years before and evacuated most of his team to London, but Magnitsky insisted on staying.
