Retaining a Foreign Attorney
(updated in September 2015)

U.S. Consular Officers abroad are prohibited from giving legal advice and from acting as agents, attorneys or in a fiduciary capacity on behalf of the U.S. citizens. U.S. citizens traveling or residing in foreign countries are subject to the laws and regulations of those countries.

Disputes With Georgian Authorities

While you are in Georgia, you are subject to Georgian laws and regulations, which are often quite different from U.S. laws and regulations.

Private Legal Disputes

The U.S. Embassy cannot become involved in private legal disputes, such as those between you and a Georgian business partner. In these circumstances, we recommend you retain an attorney. The Consular Section maintains a list of local attorneys who have told us they are willing to represent U.S. citizens.

DISCLAIMER:  The U.S. Embassy Consular Section in Tbilisi, Georgia assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the following persons or firms.  Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department of State or the U.S. Embassy.  Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance.  The information in the list on professional credentials, areas of expertise and language ability are provided directly by the lawyers; the Embassy is not in a position to vouch for such information.  You may receive additional information about the individuals on the list by contacting the local bar association or the local licensing authorities.
