Being the largest among CIS countries with immense opportunities for business, according to annual World Bank reports, Russia has made the most progress among the biggest emerging economies in implementing policies to improve its investment climate in recent years.

The uniform customs territory in the framework of the Customs Union as well close cultural links between Kazakhstan and Russia and their common historic heritage are the main drivers for strong economic cooperation between the two countries and permanent growth for trade turnover and mutual investments.

Having been on cutting edge of the developments ever since its establishment and constantly striving to extend the scope of its services available to clients, in 2013 GRATA opened its office in Moscow.

Establishing a stronger presence in Russia, GRATA International opened associate offices in: Novosibirsk - December 2016, Samara  - January 2017 and Kazan - March 2017.  

Extensive, internationally recognized expertise in providing legal support to investors in connection with cross-border M&A and financial transactions, capital markets projects and project finance in the Central Asia region and the ability to handle the most complex multi-jurisdictional assignments in cost-efficient manner while delivering high-quality results are the key strengths that we are fully implementing in Russia.
