Global law firm White & Case LLP has strengthened its practice in Kazakhstan by opening a new office in the capital Astana.
This new office will operate together with the existing White & Case office in Almaty, to support the demand of the Firm’s clients in Kazakhstan.
"We're pleased to announce the opening of our new office in Astana," said White & Case chairman Hugh Verrier. "The Firm has been present in Kazakhstan for nearly 20 years since we launched our office in Almaty in 1995. This move demonstrates our continuing commitment to our clients investing in Kazakhstan and the international activities of our Kazakh clients."
Maxim Telemtayev, the Firm's office executive partner in Almaty and Astana, said: "Kazakhstan's business hub has been shifting steadily to Astana ever since it became the country's capital city. Establishing an office in Astana will ensure we’re ideally positioned to support our clients effectively while strengthening the platform from which the ongoing development of our Kazakh practice will continue."
