Corporate Practice

Corporate practice is rightfully recognized as one of the most important ABY activities. We provide legal assistance on incorporation, restructuring and liquidation of companies. Our business portfolio always contains issues on company establishment (including joint ventures, companies with 100% foreign capital and foreign firms’ affiliates). This includes all stages of company establishment from preparation of foundation documents to “turnkey” incorporation, as well as subsequent legal assistance of established enterprises. Standing for comprehensive approach, we involve not only lawyers but also auditors, so as to create the most favourable system of relationships between investment project participants in
both legal and tax perspectives.
We regularly advise companies facing management crisis such as conflicts between shareholders or directors/the board of directors, at the same time involving public prosecutors, bailiffs, controlling bodies, lenders, auditors, insurers and the mass
media. All our efforts are concentrated on the fulfillment of our Clients’ expectations.
