Michael Wilson & Partners, Ltd. Celebrates its 18th Anniversary: Honours Employee Celebrating 18 Years at the Firm

Michael Wilson & Partners, Ltd., (MWP) which is one of the Region’s oldest, most established and largest law firms, hosted a memorable event last month with its lawyers, their families and alumni colleagues to celebrate the firm’s 18th anniversary.

Founded on 14 July 1998 in Almaty, Kazakhstan, the commercial centre of the country, MWP has now successfully carried on business for more than 18 years, and has played a key role over the years in shaping and enabling business, investments and transactions, the knowledge and practice of the law, as part of a growing legal community in Kazakhstan. MWP is proud that many of its alumni now occupy key positions in the country.

Throughout its history, which has included growth to two main offices located in Almaty, Kazakhstan and Baku, Azerbaijan, serving the Central Asian and Caucasus Region, MWP has played a key role in many of the land-mark projects and transactions that the Region has witnessed, and which have had a positive and lasting impact on business, the investment climate, community and life in general.

Whilst during the period in which MWP has done business many firms have come and gone (including Clifford Chance LLP, CMS Cameron McKenna LLP, Pepper Hamilton LLP, Bracewell LLP, Faegre & Benson LLP, Welborn Sullivan Meck & Tooley P.C., Coudert Brothers LLP, Steptoe & Johnson LLP, Squire, Sanders & Dempsey LLP, McGuireWoods LLP, Dewey LeBouef LLP, Chadbourne & Park LLP, to name but a few) MWP has survived, prospered and gone from strength to strength.

MWP is especially pleased to honour Dilyara Alimbayeva, its HR and Administration Director, who has been with MWP since its inception and has played a pivotal and unique role, attracting to MWP much of the best talent available.

About MWP:

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 July 1998 and in Baku in 2003. Today it is recognised as one of the leaders in the Central Asian and Caucasus Region, combining years of collective experience throughout the CIS.

Before founding MWP, Mr Wilson was the founding partner of the major international law firm, Baker & McKenzie throughout this Region, establishing offices for that firm from scratch in Almaty, Tashkent, Bishkek, Astana and Baku, which were the most successful group of new offices ever established anywhere in the world in the long history of Baker & McKenzie.

However, in order to better meet the needs of multinational and local clients for premier quality legal advice, know-how and innovative work product, MWP was established as a fully independent international law firm, operating through offices in Almaty and Baku, focused upon the Central Asian and Caucasus Region, and which works together with and cooperates with many of the world’s leading firms.

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 Central Asia and Caucasus Region.

MWP is more than just a mere law firm; but instead 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.
