1998–2004

REVERA’s history started in 1998 when GestionJurService legal firm was founded (later renamed as “Arkhipenko, Goretsky and partners” LLC). Our first office had only 12 square metres of floor area.

In 1999, our company started using the “Re vera” brand (meaning “in reality” in Latin). Later, the firm was rebranded as “Revera Consulting Group”.

In 2004, “Tsarev and partners” auditing firm joined with Revera Consulting Group, and the list of our services was greatly expanded.
Company’s staff by that time included 7 employees. 

2005–2009

Revera Consulting Group introduced a brand new business policy based on unified strategic goals, pooling of financial resources and unification of business. 

The company rapidly ‘gathered pace’, its headcount increasing to 17 employees, and relocated to a new office with a floor area of 120 m² (exactly 10 times bigger than the initial office ;))

In 2009 our company was for the first time noted by international guides Chambers and Partners and Best Lawyers.

Our company was actively participating in preparing World Bank’s research Easy doing business and in common projects with the representative office of the European Commission.
 

2010

We introduced separate sectorial practices — corporate, commercial, tax, and litigation practices. We continued rendering auditing services separately within the framework of “Tsarev and partners” (later known as Baker Tilly Revera). 

2010 saw the pioneering issue of our Doing Business in Belarus 2010 guide book. Thereafter, we prepared an edition annually, and it became a reputable guide book recommended and distributed by the Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In 2010 we were for the first time noted by The Legal 500.

2011

“The best 2011 legal firm in the Republic of Belarus” according to Corporate INTL Magazine.

Our staffing level had grown up to 30 employees. We introduced a grading and competence assessment system for our lawyers. 

We created the Construction and Real Estate practice. 

We started collaborating actively with BSU’s law department in arranging special student courses and supporting BSU’s law students Olympiad.

2012–2014

“Best legal services” award in a 2013 contest by the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Belarus.

We introduced our pioneering Revera Assessment Center — an event for law students offering comprehensive assessment of personal and business qualities. 

Revera Consulting Group становится членом Российской Арбитражной Ассоциации. 

Our company became a legal partner of a major Belarusian cultural event — Yury Bashmet’s International Festival.

We separated our juridical and auditing businesses: Baker Tilly became an independent company. Revera Consulting Group became a purely juridical brand.

2015-2017

We rebranded our company again as: REVERA.

Already 30 lawyers on our staff: REVERA became the largest legal firm in Belarus. The number of lawyers noted by international guides increased to 6. 

We developed and executed a partnership agreement.

We started working actively in arranging a number of educational events for Belarusian businesses.

Our company became a member of Nextlaw, an international association of leading independent legal firms.

REVERA relocated to a new spacious office at 8 Oboynaya street, where we are currently located.

We for the first time hit Tier1 of the international guide The Legal 500, and in three categories at once – this was the best result among all Belarusian legal firms.

Our lawyers took part in development of the provisions of the far-famed Presidential Decrees No. 7 and No. 8.

2018

In 2018 our company celebrated its 20th anniversary. Our headcount reached 70 employees with 8 legal practices and over 40 lawyers. 

Helen Mourashko became a partner as of January 1, 2018. 

Our corporate practice for the first time hit Band 1 of the international legal guide Chambers and Partners. And our construction practice and real estate practice hit Tier 1 of IFLR1000 rating.

REVERA IT SCHOOL was started as a unique educational project. Several thousand people – businessmen, startupers, lawyers and IT managers – participated as trainees. 

We arranged 3 large events in Moscow, Warsaw and Kyiv dedicated to doing business in Belarus and attracting investments. Our activities earned honorific mentions from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Great Stone Industrial Park Development Company.
 
Our team defended the interests of the Republic of Belarus in international arbitration, in the historical first-ever lawsuit against our country.

2019

We had grown even bigger. In 2019 REVERA had over 50 lawyers and over 20 administrative specialists. In order to secure future growth, we introduced a process management model. We launched projects to fully describe and optimise all business processes, automate company’s activities and implement legal-tech solutions in our own practice.

We put much effort in developing Belarus’s legal market. The first-ever Belarusian international workshop on FIDIC contracts.

REVERA LEGAL TECH BATTLE was the first-ever Belarusian contest of innovative ideas uniting lawyers and IT specialists to elaborate solutions at the junction of technology and law.

2020

The year 2020 marked the arrival of the covid-19 pandemic, which caused severe economic consequences for the entire world. The REVERA lawyers created a business support headquarters and launched a Telegram channel, where they promptly released expert materials to help businesses adapt to the changing conditions. One of the most significant challenges for the beginning of 2020 for most companies was the transition to a remote format of work. We successfully coped with this task ourselves, and helped our clients do the same.

Meeting the demands of our clients in supporting them to enter new markets REVERA established an office in Ukraine specializing in legal support for technology companies.

In 2020 we launched a new direction – LegalTech. Seeing it as an effective tool of adapting business to changing market, we defined our mission as assisting business in automation of legal processes without quality loss. We entered into exclusive contracts with leading vendors of LegalTech-solutions, became ELTA’s ambassadors in Belarus, carried out global research of the Belarusian LegalTech market, launched the LegalTech community in Belarus, organized and held several professional events, and made speeches at the international LegalTech community.  
 

2021

Started in the year 2020, the focus on adaptation to changing social and economic conditions continued in 2021. Due to changes in the Law on Legal Practice, the law bureau “REVERA” was closed. The attorneys, who were previously part of the law bureau, moved to the created Minsk Regional specialized legal counseling “Business. Law. Taxes” and continued cooperation with the legal company REVERA on individual projects. The associates moved to a new legal entity “Revera Legal” LLC.

This year we have continued to expand our expertise and the legal company REVERA established an office in Cyprus. Since then, the place of a “national leader” was taken by an “international legal group” REVERA law group.
