The lawyers of our firm work with clients from various sectors of the economy of Kazakhstan.

Oil and gas sector

Kazakhstan occupies one of the leading places in the world in terms of oil reserves. Among the CIS countries, the state is also one of the leaders in terms of oil reserves and production in the region.  

The oil sector of Kazakhstan is represented by more than 200 fields, concentrated mainly in the west of the country. The number of companies and foreign investments in this sector is growing every year. All of these companies face numerous legal issues in the course of their activities, since the oil and gas business is subject to many regulatory requirements of Kazakhstani legislation, both in the course of day-to-day operations and in transactions, including transactions for the acquisition of subsoil use rights.

We advise oil and gas companies on a wide range of issues, including corporate, labor, tax, antitrust. We regularly represent clients from this sector in financial and M&A transactions.  


Knowing the peculiarities of activity in this sector allows us to give recommendations in terms of solving emerging legal problems in the shortest possible time and taking into account the intricacies of regulating this sector.

Successful implementation of large-scale infrastructure projects requires legal advisors to understand the specifics of the industry, the interests of various stakeholders, and the many economic, political, social, and legal aspects that may arise during project implementation.  Our experience, knowledge and understanding of the industry allow us to provide our clients with highly professional and comprehensive legal support for transactions involving the implementation by our clients of the most complex infrastructure projects.  In particular, our lawyers advised the Almaty City Akimat and the EBRD on the development of the Almaty Light Rail Project (LRT), the first project of this magnitude to be implemented as a PPP in Kazakhstan.
