Sayat Zholshy & Partners was incorporated in the form of an attorneys’ office in preference to a limited liability partnership. Therefore, we have to protect the attorney-client privilege and to follow other rules provided for by Kazakhstan law according to which the fact of approaching an attorney, any detail of negotiations with a client and third parties, and any information related to provided legal assistance constitute a secret.
Furthermore, any interference with or obstruction of attorney’s activity in whatever way is prohibited by law. It is also prohibited to interrogate an attorney as a witness in the circumstances that have been made known to him in the course of his professional duties.
Attorney's files, records and documents and other related materials and documents, as well as attorney’s assets, including mobile communications, audio equipment and computer hardware, are exempt from examination, inspection, caption, seizure and/or check-up. Whoever unlawfully interferes in attorneys’ operations or impedes their activities may be held liable in accordance with the applicable law.
