The Kakar Advocates has achieved the status of band I firm for a second year in a row in the Chambers and Partners’ 2018 Asia-Pacific Guide, a statement from the law firm said.

Chambers and Partners is the most reputable legal directory worldwide, publishing seven regional guides per year that cover 185 jurisdictions.

All firms are ranked as Band I, II, or III, with Band I being the highest ranking. To be qualified for ranking, firms have to make a submission and take part in the directory’s research.

The research process is completely independent and client feedback is the most important factor in the ranking decision.

The Guide also recognizes Senior Counsel Thomas Kraemar as a notable practitioner at the firm and Associate Attorney Sara Balagh as the sole “Associate to Watch” in Afghanistan.

Clients have also recognized Kakar as “very strong and valued reputation for integrity, experience and legal skills in Afghanistan”.

The firm’s success is also a reflection of the strengthening of the rule of law in the country and the Afghan Government’ efforts to improve the legal framework and the business climate for private investment.(20171210)
