Kazakhstan is a key market for many businesses and continues to offer growth and investment opportunities.
Herbert Smith Freehills has a leading practice in Kazakhstan and has for many years served the needs of clients, across a range of sectors, doing business in the Republic. Our Kazakhstan Group supports clients with comprehensive, in-depth knowledge of the Kazakh legal and business environment.

Through our extensive experience of advising on transactions and disputes in and relating to Kazakhstan, we understand how projects are managed in the region and the particular challenges they bring – whether in contentious or transactional matters, in JV matters, in procurement or against contractors.
Our team can work in Russian and English and coordinates activities between our global lawyers and local counsel.
