A conference presented by the IBA European Regional Forum

The IBA Europe-Caucasus-Asia Forum, the successor of the famous CIS Local Counsel Forum, will take place this year in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, with a slightly new look, but the same soul and values we have cherished over a decade.

  • Legal challenges of investing in Caucasus and Central Asia
  • Structuring a law firm and its international client service
  • Mining regulations and international standards
  • New trends in banking and FinTech
