Bakers appoints local lawyer to lead Azerbaijani office
Baker & McKenzie has appointed a new managing partner of its Baku office, elevating local lawyer Gunduz Karimov to the leadership role.
Karimov takes over from Daniel Matthews, who has led the office in Azerbaijan since it was launched in 1998. Matthews has relocated to the firm’s Istanbul office.
“The legal market continues to go through a period of turbulence which makes it an exciting time to run the office and take innovative approaches in serving our clients and their needs in the region,” said Karimov.
