Corporate disputes in Belarus


Corporate law regulates issues related to the creation and operation of companies. A company carries out its activities only after its creation and state registration.

Business entities often do not pay proper attention to corporate issues, because at first glance they seem simple and easily resolvable. However, they are not. As soon as representatives of foreign companies are faced with issues of corporate law, there are difficulties in further management of the business. For the successful functioning and development of an organization, it is important to resolve corporate issues at the earliest opportunity.

Participants in corporate matters are mainly persons related to a legal entity: participants, employees, creditors, debtors.
