The Firm:

“CONCERN DIALOG” CJSC was established in 1998 as a company for provision of litigation and representation services mostly for individual clients. Starting 2002-2003, the Company developed services for corporate clients. Although it is a formal Corporation, it is perhaps the first company in Armenia that has implemented Partnership principles (non-formal) of decision making. In addition, the Company is completely employee owned.

At present the Company provides services of both litigation / representation and legal advice. At the same time, we believe that specialization is crucial for providing high level services, and therefore we limit our major practice areas (see the list of our services).

As we work with different corporative clients, along with one time / order based services we provide monthly subscription services up to complete outsourcing of legal support of the business.

Parallel to general business (trade) legal advice, our specialists specialize in provision of services to Telecommunication and Energetics sector companies, and we are planning to develop Mining in the near future.

We believe that constant training and active scientific / publishing involvement is crucial for development of professional, so we encourage our specialists to be active in the mentioned field. We also cooperate with the best specialists and other law firms on the market (project based approach) in case our Clients need special knowledge in areas we are not specializing, so the Clients do not have to contact several consultants / companies.

As mentioned above, we continue to provide litigation / representation services in Armenian courts and during arbitration, and litigation practice is still one of major practice areas of the Company.

Besides general business law, we specialize in the regulation (including telecommunications law) and legal issues of energetics (including tariff regulations).
