As part of its strategic goal of becoming a 'national law firm' with offices in all the four provinces of Pakistan, Azam & Rai has entered into a strategic collaborative arrangement with Kakakhel Law Associates, one of the leading law firms in Peshawar, resulting in the opening of Azam & Rai's branch office in Peshawar and Kakakhel Law Associate's branch office in Lahore.
Peshawar is the capital of the North-West Frontier Province (NWFP), one of Pakistan's four provinces. With the opening of Azam & Rai's Peshawar office and Kakakhel Law Associate's Lahore office, Azam & Rai and Kakakhel Law Associates will become the only law firms in Pakistan with offices in both the cities of Lahore and Peshawar and the provinces of the Punjab and the NWFP.
Mian Muhibullah Kakakhel, Esq., Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of Pakistan, who heads Kakakhel Law Associates, Peshawar, will also head Azam & Rai's Peshawar office.
The Peshawar office will enable Azam & Rai to provide legal services to local and overseas clients who require legal services in Peshawar and the NWFP and to clients based in Peshawar and the NWFP who require legal services in Lahore and the Punjab.
Due to its proximity to Afghanistan and its location in one of the most important cities on the Afghan Transit Trade Corridor, the Peshawar office will also enable Azam & Rai to provide legal services related to the Afghan Transit Trade through Pakistan as well as to those clients interested in investing and doing business in Afghanistan who require international-standard legal services with local knowledge.
