KIAP Law Offices, DS Law Law Offices, and Balashova Legal Consultants have de-merged, reframing their association as a "best friends" relationship.

The three firms announced that they would be merging at the end of 2019, reporting at the time that they would be operating going forward under the KIAP Digital & Smart brand (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on November 15, 2019).

According to a statement on the KIAP website, from November 2019 until March 2020, the firms “carried out large-scale work to integrate business in terms of the overall strategy, personnel, and marketing." Ultimately, “however, the COVID-19 pandemic made a significant impact on the economic situation on the market, narrowing planning horizons, and putting many industries in a state of turbulence.”
