Corporate law and finance
Corporate law: The increasing complexity of transactions and the enactment of industry-specific legislation have paved the way for the creation of new specialized practice areas. It is the cornerstone of our firm and is staffed by a group of lawyers specialized in advising companies and individuals like in all types of business, financial and commercial transactions, be they national, foreign, listed or unlisted. We advise on general commercial law matters that are common to all practice areas and industry sectors, such as general contracts, incorporation and liquidation of companies, keeping of company records and agency agreements. The corporate practice covers the entire range of business, financial and commercial transactions; often coordinating with experts from the firm’s other areas. The corporate lawyers in ELL provide services to State-owned or private companies, whether Armenian or multi-national, in all areas of their business activity.

Litigation, arbitration and mediation: Litigation is the legal practice area most commonly and traditionally associated with lawyers. Coupled with the fact that court proceeding are understood to be the top of the pyramid of any legal dispute this means that litigation practice in one of the lawyers most important tasks. Our Litigation & Arbitration practice area advises on civil and commercial disputes. Our aim is to offer our clients added value in every negotiation, claim and arbitration. It is one of our main goals to understand the specific characteristics of the sectors in which our clients operate, be it banking, finance, energy, infrastructures, construction, real estate, consumer goods to name but a few.
