Industry and Agriculture
Industry and agriculture are deemed the important sectors of the country’s economy. As an example, Kazakhstan ranked 3rd in CIS countries for production of wheat after Russia and Ukraine.
Our lawyers played prominent role in advising and guiding big industrial and agricultural companies doing or planning to do business in Kazakhstan. Among our clients are clients in aerospace and defense, automotive, manufacturing and machinery, as well as agriculture companies, companies engaged in wheat processing and storage. Various legal issues arise in the day-to-day activities of such companies, including regulatory issues related to their production processes, corporate, tax, employment and migration issues, matters connected to the competition and environment protection. In addition, lawyers of our firm advised on M&A transactions in this sector. As an example, our lawyers recently provided a legal support to a large Chinese holding company, which made investment into the agriculture sector of Kazakhstan.
