According to The Legal 500, MKD is ‘the “go-to” law firm for international clients and cross-border matters’; its ‘highly professional team has strong expertise in M&A and general corporate issues’. The firm ‘is heavily involved in loan financing and capital markets matters’ and ‘has extensive experience in project finance, construction and real estate matters’. The directory also recognizes our dispute resolution practice, and highly praises how MKD’s arbitration & litigation team handles local and cross-border disputes.
Traditionally, MKD’s team of prominent lawyers have always been well-regarded by the researchers: all of the firm’s partners - David Dzidziguri, Victor Kipiani, Archil Kbilashvili, Irakli Mgaloblishvili and Vakhtang Shevardnadze - are recognized for their outstanding expertise in M&A and general corporate issues. More specifically, Vakhtang Shevardnadze is noted for his strong skillset in project finance and maritime and energy-related disputes, while Irakli Mgaloblishvili is recommended for project finance and construction matters as well as international arbitration issues. Victor Kipiani is highly ranked for his extensive expertise in banking and project finance and real estate related matters, and the guide refers to Archil Kbilashvili as an expert in litigation and arbitration.
Besides MKD’s partners, Giorgi Kankava, one of the firm’s most experienced lawyers, is also noted for his banking and project finance work, and Mariam Antia and David Metskhovrishvili are yet again listed as ‘Next Generation Lawyers’ based on the feedback of the firm’s clients and peers.
We are very proud of the fact that our outstanding achievements and successful performance over the past year have earned us this prestigious and well-earned recognition, which serves as a strong motivation for our further business and professional development.
