Kinstellar set to launch in Khazakhstan
Kinstellar is set to launch in Kazakhstan after the hire of Dentons' Central Asia banking head Joel Benjamin.
Benjamin joins the firm as managing partner of the new Almaty office alongside Adlet Yerkinbayev, who also joined the firm’s partnership from Dentons. The two partners will be supported by a team of six associates.
Kinstellar’s managing partner Jason Mogg said: "Kazakhstan is a sensible market for us, there is limited competition from major international firms and it offers synergies with our existing offices and clients. It also gives us a foothold in Central Asia and continues our strategy of tapping into smaller and more challenging markets where there is a need for high quality service."
