In 1990 two lawyers, Lilia Vlasova and Natalia Kozyrenko, established the first private law practice in the Republic of Belarus. In 1996 the firm was renamed as Vlasova & Partners.

The firm played an integral part in the development of the private sector in Belarus during the 1990’s, having provided legal support to numerous large state-owned companies during their privatization.
 
During mid 1990’s Vlasova & Partners held a leading position in the legal services market in the Republic of Belarus. The firms' achievements have been recognisedon numerous occasions by international professional media and ranking organizations such as Chambers Global and Legal 500.
