Main pageAbout firm → Why us?

There are many different law firms on the market: large and small, local and international, specialized and full-service firms. When we founded ORIS, we took the best from all these formats: teamwork of smaller firms and structure of major players; local expertise of indigenous firms and global standards of internationals; thorough knowledge of boutiques and the ability to see the big picture inherent to generalist firms.

We then added five unique “ingredients” and received a firm that became more than just a legal adviser, but rather a reliable partner for our clients that helps them reach their business goals.

What are these five ingredients that make us unique and our services unmatched for the Kazakhstan market? 

Our philosophy. Legal consultancy is not the goal in itself. Everything we do is aimed at helping our clients to grow and achieve their business goals.
Stability of the team and the firm. Firm’s Partners and associates are like-minders and have been working together for more than 10 years. Responsibilities are clearly divided among the partners and everyone is a team player. Confidence and trust within the team is the basis for trust of our clients.
Partners’ personal involvement in each project. Regardless of the project's scope and budget, a partner leads the deal personally from the beginning to the closure.
Constant growth. We never stop learning. We clearly see the path of our further development and tirelessly follow it. This is why our clients feel confident to seek our advice also on broader business issues, often beyond legal services.
We initiate new projects for our clients. Our clients enter new markets and excel in new industries thanks to their trust in us and our services. They know that we will thoroughly work through all legal aspects allowing our clients to focus on their core business. An extensive partner network around the world enable us to provide first-class services also outside Kazakhstan.
