Baker & McKenzie to launch in Morocco
Baker & McKenzie is set to launch a new office in Casablanca, its entry into Morocco marking its 71st office worldwide and its third base on the African continent along with Cairo and Johannesburg.
"We can now offer clients market-leading Africa expertise both in global financial centers and locally on the ground in key African regions," said Koen Vanhaerents, chairman of the firm's Europe, Middle East and Africa practice.
Baker & McKenzie has hired Kamal Nasrollah of the French firm August & Debouzy to lead the Casablanca office. Nasrollah is followed by a team of four associates.
