(ii) establishment of joint ventures in various jurisdictions; 

(iii) registration of corporate changes (e.g., change in shareholder structure, charter capital, etc.); and

(iv) liquidation.

From drafting of the shareholder agreement to the distribution of profit, out team secures legal interests of shareholders. Particularly, we can act as a counsel of foreign investors and represent their interests regarding their shares and participatory interests in Azerbaijani entities.
