International Organizations, Local Non-Governmental Organizations
There are many international organizations and non-governmental organizations in the Kyrgyz Republic which contribute to promoting economic and social development of the country, enhancing institutional and legislative capacity, and building a strong civil society.
Over a long period of cooperation, Kalikova & Associates (K&A) has earned a reputation as a reliable legal advisor for dozens of international organizations and many local NGOs. K&A is first to be asked for advice by the major international financial institutions funding various projects in the Kyrgyz Republic and providing loans to local commercial banks and micro finance organizations. Among our clients are the International Finance Corporation, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the Asian Development Bank and other international creditors.
Clients regularly seek advice from K&A on labor and tax law issues arising in connection with hiring local personnel for international projects, including concerning tax exemptions and preferences. We also provide legal advice on migration and visa requirements, assist in obtaining work permits for foreign employees, and represent our clients before various government authorities and courts.
Major part of our practice is focused on legal support in transactional matters of international organizations, diplomatic missions and local NGOs, as well as their construction contractors, and in acquisition of titles to immovable property, lease of land and office premises.
Thanks to high level of expertise and unique experience of its lawyers, K&A is always engaged as partner and participant in various international projects related to the assessment of legal environment of business in the Kyrgyz Republic and its investment policy and law reforms.
