Rulemaking

Drafting regulations is one of our most responsible and complicated practices. This is due to the fact that the prepared draft law or bylaw contains rules of conduct for an unlimited number of persons – participants in legal relations. An error in the formation of structure and content of the norm can thus lead to catastrophic consequences, especially when it comes to regulations that ensure implementation of reforms, i.e. introduction of absolutely new, previously non-existent rules of conduct.
