Foreign Direct Investment Projects

We have worked with an extensive number of foreign investors and international corporations operating in the region, or their subsidiaries, meaning that we have accumulated vast experience in assisting foreign investors. We typically cover a wide range of diverse issues – from corporate matters to governmental incentives, from employment advice to tax structuring, from office leasing to detailed territory planning and construction permits, from general advice about the business environment to rules regarding regulated activities.

We have extensive expertise in projects involving foreign investment support schemes, including negotiations regarding investment agreements with governmental institutions. As we have also built strong relations with these institutions, including state investment agencies, we co-operate with the state and municipalities in achieving the best possible outcome for our clients. Our experience covers the full cycle of investors’ activities, advising them when they enter our markets and when they decide to leave. We have represented clients on extraordinarily complex and extremely delicate projects that attracted lots of publicity.
