Our experience and practice show that the main driving force of the legislative process and its key participants must be practicing lawyers. Our advantage lies in the fact that, owing to the direct work with the client, we deeply understand the specifics and problems of a particular sphere, as well as the problems existing in it, caused by inadequate or sometimes wrong regulation. At the same time, legislative work requires high level of legal qualifications and experience.
Having sound knowledge of the specifics of certain sectors, our lawyers are actively involved in the legislative process, acting as experts in these sectors.
