RÉSUMÉ

Explore the corridors of my legal practice, beneath which lies a bedrock of knowledge that informs the strategic advocacy I provide

In the sultry month of August in the tumultuous year of 2020, I embarked on a groundbreaking entrepreneurial journey, founding AI Law. My pioneering mission is to create a fully digital law firm that under the banner of AI Law provides top-quality legal services to clients across the globe, all from the comfort of their own homes. ​

 

Before embarking on my entrepreneurial journey, I achieved my Bachelor's Degree in Law (magna cum laude) with a GPA of 3.9, ranking 4th among all the graduates of 2015 from Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University (TSU). Additionally, it's important to note that this isn't the contemporary GPA where everyone seems to have a 4.0 effortlessly. This represents a genuine GPA, achieved through rigorous and hard-earned dedication to studying. While studying at TSU, I achieved laurels by winning the Moot Court in Private Law, organized by the European Law Students' Association, and the Annual National Commercial Law Moot Court organized by the Free University of Tbilisi. Furthermore, I was a part of the World Universities Comparative Law Project organized by international law firm Allen & Overy and represented the TSU team at the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna, organized by UNCITRAL. ​

 

In 2016, my thirst for knowledge propelled me to pursue my studies abroad. My credentials were recognized by seventeen prestigious universities in the United States, the United Kingdom, and continental Europe, including Brunel University London, UC Davis School of Law, Institute for Law and Finance of Frankfurt, King's College London, New England Law Boston, Northeastern University, University of Aberdeen, University of Birmingham, UC Hastings College of Law, University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow, University of Leicester, University of Nottingham, Queen Mary University of London, University of San Diego School of Law, Widener University Delaware Law School and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I was awarded scholarships totaling $146,950 and £27,095 from these institutions. In 2017, I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, College of Law, where I was fortunate enough to be a part of an alma mater of 24 Nobel Prize laureates and 29 Pulitzer Prize winners. The College of Law is consistently ranked as one of the top law schools in the US by U.S. News & World Report, and the university itself is ranked №22 in the world by the Center for World University Rankings. During my time at UIUC, I was bestowed the CALI Excellence for the Future Award twice - in Contracts and Constitutional Law. ​

 

I've been practicing law since 2013, starting my journey at Human Rights Priority, the then-leading non-governmental human rights organization led by Lia Mukhashavria. For a brief period in 2014, I worked as a visiting researcher at the Ministry of Justice of Georgia, Analytical Department where I worked on freedom of information and personal data protection issues. I've been an associate attorney at the BLC Law Office since 2015 until July 2020, successfully handling hundreds of complex litigations and representing clients in transactional matters. In 2020-2021, I was appointed as a Chief Counsel of City Loft LLC and Partner and Director of BB Legal. ​ Apart from my law practice, I impart knowledge as an invited lecturer at Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University, where I teach courses in Private International Law and International Civil Litigation. My works are regularly published in the Georgian-German Comparative Law Journal. In July 2023, I was appointed as the Head Coach of the TSU Vis Moot team and successfully guided the team through the 2023-2024 season.
