Mukhit Yeleuov is a Partner in the Almaty office and the Head of the Kazakhstan Dispute Resolution practice.  Mukhit has many years of experience representing clients in Kazakhstan courts (including the Supreme Court) as well as in international arbitration proceedings.  Mukhit also acts as an expert on Kazakh law matters in foreign courts and international arbitration proceedings.

Very well known, very professional and very active.

Among very strong and experienced partners, I would point out Mukhit Yeleuov [and senior associate Dina Berkaliyeva]. Both provide an excellent service and have in-depth knowledge. Both are very energetic and highly capable as litigators in many areas, which makes them two of the top lawyers in Kazakhstan.
