Global Vision.
BYLF Decision

Dear Clients and Colleagues,

Our team decided to establish Anischenko Laptev law firm in 2023 in response to changes and challenges in the Belarusian legal market. We have managed an amicable separation process from Sorainen law firm that will enable us to continue meeting the needs of our clients and providing top quality legal advice.

We adhere to our values and purpose, think globally and use "BYLF" acronym to reflect strategic choice to build the best next gen BY (Belarusian) Law Firm on the foundations we have. They are strong legal expertise, international standards, more than 20 years of professional practice in Belarus, ESG responsibility and unique knowledge — both theoretical and practical of how professional service firms should operate to meet XXI century challenges.

Looking forward to our cooperation!

Alexey Anischenko and Kirill Laptev
