Making New Connections

Professor Christopher Kelley leaves tomorrow for the Republic of Belarus to teach a short course in Legal Writing in English at the Vlasova Mikhel & Partners law firm in Minsk, Belarus at the invitation of one of the partners, Alexey Anischenko. The firm was first established in 1990 by Lilia Vlasova and Natalia Kozyrenko as the first private practice law firm in the Republic of Belarus.

The firm now employs more than 20 lawyers. It has been recognized by the Ministry of Justice as one of the "best law firms in Belarus" for three consecutive years and it holds the international top ranking from both Chambers and Partners and IFLR 1000.

Vlasova Mikhel & Partners is part of "The CIS Leading Counsel Network (LCN), a professional network of nine leading law firms across the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) economic region offering clients integrated multijurisdictional legal advice. This network brings together law firms in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Turkmenistan and Ukraine, and "aims to combine highest international professional standards with a unique local insight in the regions, which are increasingly attracting international investments."
