Pakistan

Overview

After a period of fragility, the newly elected government in Pakistan has provided the legal market with a certain degree of stability compared with previous years. Law firms have reported an increase in activity across capital markets, corporate, energy and banking as a result of increased confidence in the Pakistani market. The introduction of a new privatisation programme by the Privatisation Commission is also aiming to kick start activity in this area.

With energy shortages common across Pakistan, significant investment has been made by the government into high-profile energy projects such as the Quaid-e-Azam solar energy park project. Infrastructure projects are also benefiting from a rise in overseas investment, particularly from China.

The introduction of 3G and 4G mobile services has sparked renewed investment into the telecoms sector. E-banking also remains a key area of growth.

The legal market in Pakistan is dominated by local firms such as HaidermotaBNR, Orr, Dignam & Co, Mohsin Tayebaly & Co and RIAALaw.
