The history of the KM & Partners in Kazakhstan dates back to 1994 when its founders together with the Macleod Dixon law firm which was established in Canada in 1912 found its branch office in Almaty. The Almaty office of the Macleod Dixon law firm had among other the following clients on board:
large international and national companies;
Government organizations; and
International financial institutions (i.e., IFC, Eurasian Development Bank, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development).
Macleod Dixon became one of the first international law firm officially accredited in the Republic of Kazakhstan. For many years of practice the Almaty office of Macleod Dixon law firm has earned a reliable reputation as a competent and indispensable partner of its numerous clients not only in Kazakhstan but also in Central Asia and the CIS countries.
In 2012 Macleod Dixon merged with the global giant in the legal services market with around 4000 lawyers in more than 50 countries – the international law firm Norton Rose Fulbright.
In 2018 KM & Partners due to the global changes in the world practice of providing professional legal services became the successor of many years of practice of Macleod Dixon and Norton Rose Fulbright in Kazakhstan.
