Aleinikov & Partners is recognised to be one of the top firms, which are working in the technology sector. Our clients run the gamut of both international technology giants and world-changing startups, as well as private investors and venture funds that intend to invest in high tech.
Our firm collected extensive experience with a wide range of technologies in areas that include:
Aleinikov & Partners performed structuring a number of the industry’s most high-profile projects such as AIMATTER (acquired by Google), MSQRD (acquired by Facebook), Melesta Games (invested in by Wargaming), Mapdata (acquired by Mapbox), MAPS.ME (acquired by Mail.ru), Vizor Games (invested in by Playrix).
A rapid growth of technology business in Belarus is largely encouraged by the legal regime of the High Technologies Park (HTP). Aleinikov & Partners assisted numerous global technology enterprises in entering the Belarusian market and starting business through the HTP. These are IDT Corporation (NYSE: IDT, USA), Evolution Gaming (STO: EVO, Sweden), Dinamica Generale (Italy), Marketcom Technology (Cyprus) and more.
We acted as legal counsel of the HTP and a string of IT companies in respect of drafting Presidential Decree No.8 On Development of Digital Economy. According to international experts, Decree No. 8 (called the creation of the HTP 2.0) has become the most successful Belarusian reform (hundreds of IT companies entered the HTP, and the export revenue of residents increased to $2.3 billion a year). Decree No.8 also became the most high-profile regulatory legal act abroad - in connection with its adoption, about 200 publications appeared in the media, including those posted by the largest media outlets: Bloomberg, Reuters, Emerging Europe and others that provoked an interest in Belarus from foreign business.
Being involved in building legal infrastructure to fuel the industry's sustainable growth, the team of Aleinikov & Partners garnered a deep understanding of its nature. Combined with the strongest legal expertise, that is what allows us to be assigned with a status of market leader.

When we imagine the “boutique” in the sphere of legal services, such features as the competence of the company, the knowledge of corporate law and the ability to solve any non-typical tasks for Belarus in the shortest terms are in the first place and company's lawyers have such competencies. Specialists of Aleinikov&Partners are not only fluent in English, but also are proficient in professional terminology.
