As part of minerals rich and emerging markets Caspian region Turkmenistan is becoming increasingly popular with foreign companies and investors.
As a logical step towards creation of a fully-fledged practice in 2011 GRATA International moved to open a Turkmenistan desk staffed with both qualified foreign legal attorneys and local Tukmen counsel. Our consultants are fully acquainted with and experienced in Turkmenistan laws and legal system.
The Turkmenistan desk is a natural progression for GRATA International, which is the leading law firm Central Asia with operational offices in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan.
GRATA International has earned international recognition for its expertise in areas of foreign investments, M&A, capital markets, project finance and financial transactions across Central Asia and Caucasus.
The ability to provide value-for-money legal services and understanding the local cultures of the Central Asia region are some of our main strengths.
Tashkent -based finance partner Atabek Sharipov leads the Turkmenistan Desk with support from Ashgabat based team of experienced practitioners.
