Kakar Advocates, a leading full-service law firm in Kabul, has entered into a strategic alliance with DLA Piper to market for and work together on public and private sector mandates in Afghanistan as the Government and the investment community re-builds and develops the economy.

DLA Piper also advises governments and public sector institutions across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific.
