As Central Asia’s largest economy, Kazakhstan represents an enormous opportunity for English and Welsh solicitors and law firms dealing with cross border issues. This visit comes hot on the heels of the opening of the new Astana International Financial Centre (AIFC), which is based on best practices and principles of English common law. The visit is a unique opportunity to promote the use of English law, the English and Welsh legal profession and England and Wales as a disputes resolution centre.
