Business Legal Bureau is generally strong in international and cross-border work. The firm is also active in the projects area and recognised for energy work. Financial services, real estate, and technology are some of the sectors in which the firm has expertise.

The firm’s recent corporate deals have been across various sectors, including education, food and healthcare. A highlight was acting for a Georgian medical corporation on the acquisition and restructuring matters of taking over a medical institution. Corporate due diligence was a recurring mandate that the firm received, notably working for McDonald’s in its expansion in Georgia.

US government agency, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) is among the key clients for the firm’s project finance team. Europe's largest development finance institutions, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the German Investment Corporation (DEG), have also been advised by the team on various matters.

The only prominent staffing change in the financial and corporate teams was the exit of senior associate, Mariam Vashakidze, who joined Dentons.

Among others, the firm has welcomed global music corporations Bravo, Sony Music and Warner as new clients during the research period.
