My friend is a graduating LLM, and she wants to know if biglaw is a realistic career path. She has a degree called "master of laws" from Russia, and a general LLM. GPA for the law degree was 3.6, and the LLM is all pass/fail.
She is fluent in Russian and English, and has worked for a few law and business firms in a translating capacity.
Is biglaw with this background a realistic prospect? If so, how would one achieve biglaw with this background, besides networking and mass mailing?

This is common. I've seen it more with Latin American and Chinese lawyers but I bet someone would find a Russian lawyer valuable. Probably helps to practice first in Russia before doing the LLM though.
