We advised a major developer of inclusive computer games with offices in the USA, Canada and Belarus on a wide range of issues.

Our assistance covered a broad scope of legal issues, starting with a review of contractual arrangements with its outsourced game developer in Minsk in regard to IP rights transfer and continuing with establishing the client’s own local subsidiary. In particular we investigated the entire development process to check due contractual formalisation of software development services by a non-cooperative outsourcing partner in Belarus with further establishment of a new contractual model for a local R&D centre, as well as preparing establishment and employment documents.

The project team consisted of partner Maksim Salahub, senior associate Kirill Laptev, associates Pavel Lashuk, Tatsiana Zubarava and Aliaksandr Artsiukhevich. We also advised the client on obtaining the status of a High Tech Park (HTP) resident to start using the benefits of this favourable regime.
