Corporate Law and M&A

Due to the complexity of the subject of mergers and acquisitions there is no separate legal act governing such transactions directly, nor the corresponding fields of law on this issue. Nevertheless, the main normative legal acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan regulating processes of mergers and acquisitions are the Civil Code, and the Laws on limited and additional liability and joint-stock companies.

Thus, mergers and acquisitions can be attributed to the sphere of corporate law, which regulates the legal status, activities and the creation of business entities, as well as the relationship between the owners and the companies they own.
