Who we are

Since its inception on 25 December 1998, Sayat Zholshy & Partners has become a leader in the Kazakhstan market of legal services.  Over the past two decades we have achieved unparalleled results mostly because we have always kept safe our founding creed – work in a team consisting exclusively of professionals and solve the problems of our clients as thoroughly as our own, always striving for best international practices and international standards.

Over a twenty-year period Sayat Zholshy & Partners was engaged in a number of the most substantial and complex transactions, including, but not limited to, sale and purchase of businesses in Kazakhstan.  On a number of occasions, we provided transaction support in connection with strategic investments into the national economy.  We represented clients in court litigation over billion-dollar disputes, including disputes with market regulators.  We drafted laws, supported insolvent debtors’ bankruptcy and rehabilitation proceedings, and protected companies against illegal takeovers.  We have extensive experience in the Kazakhstan market and are eager to put our experience and knowledge into practice for the benefit of our clients.

Sayat Zholshy & Partners represents a partnership of top-ranked lawyers and attorneys-at-law, where partners delve into the problems and challenges of their clients themselves trying not to shift their responsibility to junior lawyers.  Our Firm comprises 7 Partners, 7 of Counsel and over 20 Associates educated in the best universities of Kazakhstan, Russia, Germany and Poland.  Our Partners read lectures in universities and publish their works in leading print and digital magazines.

Our approach to workflow management attracts the most talented and agile lawyers ensuring we deliver excellent customer service.  The majority of our employees have a good command of the Kazakh, Russian and English languages, and some of them speak German and Polish. Moreover, our professional translators ensure high quality translation of legal documents.

For the most efficient representation and timely legal support of our clients in Kazakhstan, we have our offices in two key locations, namely, Almaty and Nur-Sultan.  However, when our clients need our presence in other regions of Kazakhstan or abroad, we send our lawyers and attorneys-at-law wherever is necessary.
