During the first year of our collaboration, our team was recognized by such international directories as Chambers Europe, Chambers Global, IFLR1000 and Legal500; within 9 years, SPP reinforced its leading positions; in 2016, we found ourselves in Band 1 of Chambers Europe and Chambers Global, and in Top Tier of Legal500. SPP ranks in the tops of the categories applied to Belarusian law firms: corporate and commercial law, dispute resolution.
