The British-Kazakh Law Association (BrKLA) was founded in 2010 with the support of the English Bar Council and Law Society. The aim of the Association is to foster close cooperation between the legal professions of the United Kingdom and the Republic of Kazakhstan and promote legal development in both countries.
BrKLA’s members are private practitioners, in-house lawyers, other professionals and businesses involved in Anglo/Kazakh work.
BrKLA is governed by a committee, which is in charge of its programme of activities.
The programme of activities is focused (currently) on bilateral seminars held in London, Astana and Almaty which discuss legal developments in areas such as corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, natural resources law and dispute resolution.
The committee is chaired by Rashid Gaissin.
