PPP and Infrastructure

Our PPP practice is one of few specialized practices in Kazakhstan, which provides a full range of services for the implementation of investment projects, using Public and Private Partnership mechanisms.

Our successful long-term practice for assisting our clients from public and state sectors attests that demand for our services increases.  We know the specifics of statutory regulation and Kazakhstan market practice and can speak the same language with public clients as well as foreign investors.

PPP projects are implemented in all regions of Kazakhstan in such areas as:

•           water discharge
•           education
•           water supply
•           health care
•           heat supply
•           transport
•           energy

PPP legislation is improved and amended on a regular basis, and ORIS lawyers, being involved in legislative drafting, can forecast developments and offer to our clients the most beneficial project participation scheme. We actively participate in the establishment and introduction of PPP mechanisms in Kazakhstan and can provide safe and effective support to our clients, considering our vast experience of work on investment projects.

Our practice, involving interaction with the PPP Centre, social-entrepreneurial corporations, national companies, national management holdings, republican and local state bodies, international organizations and financial institutions, gives the opportunity to clients to receive consultations, taking into account their interests and specifics of other project participants operations.
