Curtis' Almaty law office is in the newly developed Nurly Tau business center which extends to the Residence of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
Curtis Mallet-Prevost (Kazakhstan) LLP in Almaty and Astana was established in 2008. The firm's attorneys in the region focus on infrastructure development and public projects, investment management, and international arbitration. We have served as lead advisers on some of the largest projects in Kazakhstan, counseling both private-sector companies and governmental entities. To ensure a consistently high level of service and the full benefit of our resources and global reach, Curtis utilizes an integrated team approach across offices and practice groups, staffing many of our matters with lawyers from two or more offices. Our lawyers are multilingual and are fluent in English, Russian and Kazakh.
As an integral part of a multi office team of practitioners, our infrastructure development attorneys in Almaty are experienced in the full range of corporate and regulatory issues involved in large-scale infrastructure development projects, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, tax, real estate, land use, and commercial contracts and leases. Clients operating in the region include project sponsors, investors, lenders, developers and government agencies engaged in oil and gas, tourism development and hotel projects. The investment management attorneys in Almaty are part of a multi office integrated team of lawyers who focus on developing tailored solutions for the alternative investment community. The team has extensive experience establishing and advising funds in a majority of jurisdictions. Our clients include sovereign wealth funds, financial institutions, fund managers and their sponsors and principals, and investors. We work closely with clients throughout the formation, capital-raising and investment process to identify issues, develop practical solutions and provide an informed view of the market. We also routinely provide advice on post-launch management issues and investment opportunities.
Our international arbitration team represents clients in matters ranging from complex multiparty, multijurisdictional disputes to mid-sized commercial arbitrations and mediations. We are involved in all stages of the arbitration process, including drafting arbitration clauses, and, in the event of a dispute, handling pre-arbitration negotiations and representing clients before arbitral bodies and in court proceedings to recognize and enforce arbitration awards. Our practitioners have appeared before all the major European and international arbitral bodies in disputes arising under the rules of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), American Arbitration Association (AAA), Netherlands Arbitration Institute (NAI) and London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), as well as in ad hoc arbitration under the rules of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL). In response to our clients' growing interest in efficient and inexpensive dispute resolution, we also have become increasingly active in mediation and dispute boards.
Resident attorneys in our Kazakhstan offices are admitted to practice in Kazakhstan. Curtis Mallet-Prevost (Kazakhstan) LLP is owned by the Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP (New York) legal entity.
