April 5, 2012

NEW YORK — The international law firm Chadbourne & Parke LLP today issued a statement on the transition of its office in Almaty to the law firm Dechert LLP.

“We wish Ken Mack and all in the Almaty office much success. They have served the Firm and its clients well,” said Chadbourne Managing Partner Andrew Giaccia. “And we will continue to refer those clients who need counsel in Almaty to the office as the opportunities arise. Chadbourne is well known for its high quality emerging markets practices, and the Firm has expanded and will continue to expand in markets which we and our clients view as having the greatest potential for growth and the greatest need for our services. The departure of the Almaty office is not inconsistent with our strategic vision for the Firm. In the last few years we began shifting our resources to our offices in other markets with greater potential for us and expanding into other high growth markets, as evidenced by our recent opening of offices in Brazil and Turkey.”
