On September 5-7, 2018, Partners of Kosta Legal attended one of the most significant legal events in Central Asia – the IBA Europe-Caucasus-Asia Forum, being a successor of the famous CIS Local Counsel Forum and held in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Cross-border projects in the Central Asian region and the region’s investment environment were discussed with legal expertise in various business law areas being shared amongst legal practitioners.
Kosta Legal lawyers met many of firm’s longstanding partners from various regions, including those from London-based Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, Russia’s Pepeliaev Group, Kazakh Aequitas and many others, and were able to tell about rapid regulatory changes in Uzbekistan. Changes in the forex, investment, arbitration and land legislation were of particular interest to our foreign colleagues. Having recently completed a number of projects in each of these areas, Partners of the firm were glad to share their practical experience.
