Global law firm Dentons is expanding its presence in Central and Eastern Europe by opening an office in Tbilisi, Georgia.

A team of 11 lawyers, led by partners Otar Kipshidze and Avto Svanidze, will join Dentons from DLA Piper on May 1, 2017.
"Georgia is a real economic success story. Over the last decade it has implemented market reforms to attract more foreign investors. It is now ranked 16th in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Report 2017, up from 112th in 2005,” said Joe Andrew, global chairman of Dentons.

The team in Tbilisi brings practice and sector capabilities in litigation and dispute resolution, corporate banking and finance, intellectual property, energy, government, infrastructure and PPP.
