The international legal directory ‘The Legal 500′ has recently published its 2019 rankings, in which Mgaloblishvili Kipiani Dzidziguri (MKD) are recognized once again as a top-tier law firm in Georgia.

According to the directory, MKD offers a ‘professional, responsive and efficient service’, and clients report that the team is ‘a pleasure to work with’. The following rankings clearly recognize MKD as a leading full-service law firm in Georgia:

  • Commercial, Corporate and M&A: Tier 1
  • Banking, Finance and Capital Markets: Tier 2
  • Dispute Resolution: Tier 2
  • Real estate and construction (and projects): Tier 2

All five of MKD’s partners are highly recommended by the legal directory within the following practice areas:

  • Victor Kipiani ranks among Georgia’s leading lawyers in Commercial, Corporate and M&A, and is also recommended for his expertise in Banking, Finance and Capital Markets;
  • Irakli Mgaloblishvili is recognised for his extensive practice in regulatory compliance and project finance. He is also distinguished within dispute resolution practice as ‘a thorough and competent professional who gives a lot of thought to the strategy in a litigation case’;

We are proud that our lawyers are regularly praised by numerous legal directories for their extensive track record and commitment.
