Our Kabul office was established in 2009, in the heart of a re-emerging Afghanistan. Its aim: to better represent our clients’ interests, improve access to information, interpret and translate the current laws of Afghanistan and to facilitate working with various government authorities.
Since then, we have grown to become the largest international law firm in Afghanistan.
Investing in local expertise we have gained a deep understanding of Afghanistan’s business culture and maintain a close relationship with local businesses and development and government agencies.
We have a strong team of dedicated, qualified and experienced lawyers who provide a broad spectrum of services to domestic and international clients in both the private and public sectors.
As the official languages of the laws of Afghanistan are Pashto and Dari, our lawyers are fluent in both languages and are expert draftsmen and translators.
In addition, our team of lawyers are fluent in English, as it is the most widely used language for commercial transactions.
Through advising our corporate clients we have developed a niche in the areas of banking and finance, construction, corporate registration, corporate restructuring, customs, employment and labour law matters, infrastructure projects, intellectual property, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, mining, non-profit and social sector development, oil and gas projects, pharmaceuticals, power projects, privatisations, project finance, regulatory affairs, taxation and telecommunications.
With talented and qualified team of legal professionals, an office in the busiest commercial district of the city and access to RIAA Barker Gillette Alliance’s global resources, we have become an important part of the Afghan reconstruction efforts.
