M. Khurram Baig was born in the city of Hyderabad (India).  His family immigrated to the United States in 1979 and Khurram has called Georgia home ever since. Khurram grew up in Stone Mountain and graduated from Redan High School, where he was an active student leader. Because of his strong ties to the area, Khurram decided to stay close to home for college and attended Emory University. 

 

At Emory, Khurram discovered his passion for service. Among the honors he received at Emory was his induction into the Emory College Hall of Fame for student leadership and his selection as the Senior Class Commencement Speaker.  

 

After graduating from Emory, Khurram attended the Howard University School of Law in Washington, D.C. While at Howard, Khurram was voted as Editor-in-Chief of the Social Justice Law Review.  He was also a member of the Moot Court team that won the National Tournament hosted by Whittier Law School in California where Khurram was selected as the tournament's Best Oral Advocate.  

 

After graduating from Howard in 2003, Khurram spent eight years practicing law with some of Georgia’s best legal minds.  During that time, he not only developed expertise in his current areas of practice, but more importantly, Khurram learned to view himself as a problem-solver.  In 2011, Khurram decided it was time to answer a larger question for himself – why is he practicing law?  The answer to that question lead him to form The Baig Firm so he could serve his own traditionally underserved Muslim and South Asian communities as well as his local community at large.

 

The mission of The Baig Firm since its first day in 2012 was, and still remains, two-fold: to care deeply about clients and be their problem solver. This means pursuing approaches that are holistic and in the client’s best interest. Khurram’s practice today focuses on several areas, but he has especially developed a reputation as  the “go-to” attorney for small and mid-size businesses seeking External General Counsel services. Khurram currently services more than a dozen businesses in this capacity, which allows him to deliver fuller and more meaningful legal services on an ongoing basis.
