White & Case launches Uzbekistan office
White & Case has opened a new office in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan. The new base is the firm’s second in Central Asia, expanding its presence in the region beyond its current location in Astana, Kazakhstan.
The new office will focus on cross-border matters and disputes, and will be led by Carolyn Lamm, Scott Hershman, and Kamilla Azamat. Lamm said the country’s recent election of Shavkat Mirziyoyev as president will likely offer new opportunities for business.
