The team at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP is 'very talented and cooperative', and often advises international banks alongside the London office in financing, capital markets deals and restructuring. The firm lost skilled banking associate Konstantin Lukhnov, but also made two new hires at associate level, namely Olga Klimova and Karina Ilyussizova. The firm represents the AIX, a division of the newly formed Astana International Financial Centre (AIFC), in connection with policy drafting and stock exchange procedures; Kazakh partners Bakhytzhan Kadyrov and Aset Shyngyssov worked with with the London office on this matter. Shyngyssov advised a client in the natural resources sector on EBRD financing for the $295m construction of an enrichment factory in Kazakhstan; Asem Bakenova and associates Karina Ilyussizova and Daniyar Zhumakhanov were also involved in this matter.
