Hall Booth Smith, P.C. would like to congratulate its Georgian partner firm, Eristavi Law Group. The World Finance Legal Awards has named Eristavi Law Group the 2012 Best Banking & Finance Firm in Georgia. Furthermore, David Eristavi received recognition as the Best Lawyer in Georgia.

The World Finance Awards were created in 2007 and identify leaders, individuals, teams, and organizations that represent the best practice in the financial and business world. The awards panel used a wide range of criteria to inform its decision, such as innovation, originality and quality of product, proof of market development, and excellence in client development.

The Eristavi Law Group (ELG) is a Georgian partner firm of Hall Booth Smith (HBS). ELG was founded in early 2009 and has quickly grown into the leading law firm in the country of Georgia. The firm has been recognized for its diverse scope of legal services, ground-breaking products, and advisory services. Based on a vast experience in the area of corporate law, the firm is setting the standard for legal services in Georgia.

In October 2010, ELG entered into a partnership with HBS and became the first Georgian law firm to have an exclusive partnership with an American law firm. Strategic alliances with outstanding firms like ELG have become an important part of HBS’s strength as a full service law firm and have allowed HBS to better serve its clients and its own employees.
