In October 2015, the US announced that it would be maintaining a long-term combat presence in Afghanistan – following an unwelcome resurgence in Taliban activity and political turbulence after NATO formally ended its combat mission in Afghanistan in December 2014 – and this decision seems to have spurred economic activity. Despite security concerns, industry and services expanded during the first half of 2016, and the Asian Development Bank has forecast economic growth of 2% for Afghanistan in 2016.

The legal market in Afghanistan is small and concentrated in Kabul. Despite its compact size, it plays host to several foreign law firms, with DLA Piper the most recent new arrival following its decision to form a strategic alliance with Kakar Advocates LLC in 2016. In addition, Legal Oracles, Advocates & Corporate Consultants, which is split between Pakistan and Afghanistan, and global law firm RIAA Barker Gillette, also have offices on the ground.

Rosenstock Legal Services and Scott Advocates LLP are headquartered in Kabul and widely regarded as local players, thus are included in the Local law firms ranking, despite being largely staffed by foreign lawyers.
