Real estate construction (EPC and EPCM contracts)

The construction market has always been quite active in Kazakhstan. Having experience since 2006 with construction companies from the World TOP 100, we have accumulated considerable knowledge and experience. 

Property management

The complexity of local laws and the roman-german approach to the law system, in general, especially for foreign asset management companies, are often obstacles to the successful application of western practices and case studies. The problem is that there are just a small number of cases implemented in practice and that the frequently changing rules of law require constant monitoring and adjustment of particular schemes. 

Corporate law

The Artyushenko & Partners law firm provides legal support to foreign construction and development companies interested in developing their business in the Republic of Kazakhstan. 

Litigation and arbitration

Notably, the sooner our company is involved in the legal proceeding, the more effective we will use all remedies available in Kazakhstan's laws in favour of our client. Timely initiation of the legal proceeding will be your advantage only if you do it with the consultant's help specializing in relevant issues. We have been working in the market of legal support for real estate and corporate matters since 2005. 

Construction contracts FIDIC

Artyushenko & Partners law firm lawyers have accompanied more than 50 projects in Kazakhstan using FIDIC contracts and more than five projects in the CIS countries.
