Our History

Michael Wilson & Partners, Ltd. (MWP) is a full service law firm with offices in both Almaty and Baku covering Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, the Central Asian Region and the Caucasus. MWP was established in Almaty in 1998 and in Baku in 2003. Today it is recognised as one of the leaders in the Central Asian Region and the Caucasus, combining years of collective experience in the CIS.

Michael Wilson is a Director. Before founding MWP, Michael had been the regional founding partner of a major international law firm with offices in Almaty and Tashkent. In order to meet the needs of multinational and local clients for premier quality legal advice and know-how, he decided to establish a fully independent international law firm, Michael Wilson & Partners, Ltd., operating through offices in Almaty and Baku and being totally focused upon the whole of the Central Asian and Caucasus area.

As a result, MWP has a unique ability to meet its clients’ real needs in legal services especially when approaching and dealing with the most important business opportunities that exist not only in Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan but also throughout the whole of Central Asia and the Caucasus.

However, MWP is not just a law firm; it also takes pride in partnering with its clients in relation to their business opportunities, challenges and obstacles. In doing so, MWP provides creative, timely and practical solutions specifically tailored to meet its clients' requirements, deadlines and budgets.
