Minimising risk

We offer practical, innovative advice to help domestic and international businesses, governments, project sponsors and banks minimise risk while pursuing investment opportunities in Africa's emerging economies. Our team's local and international expertise spans corporate and commercial sectors, from banking & finance to natural resources.

Our Antitrust & Competition team advises on high-profile, complex multi-jurisdictional antitrust matters and competition law issues in the aviation, hospitality, gaming, food and beverage, media, consumer retail, technology, property, construction and fast-moving consumer goods sectors.

As new lawyers, we understand that our responsibility as a legal service provider goes beyond advising clients. Helping the communities in which we operate is an integral component of our work and essential for Africa’s post-pandemic recovery. We don’t believe in "chequebook charity", instead, we believe in rolling up our sleeves and being an active part of the projects we support, partnering with credible community stakeholders. Our focus in terms of our pro bono initiatives is on education and capacity building, aiding mostly the most vulnerable and marginalised members of society. Some of our recent activities including the Female Dignity Project, Mandela Day and Women's Day initiatives, the 16 Days of Activism campaign, and breast cancer awareness projects.

Operating sustainably and responsibly underpins our Firm’s purpose and strategy and reflects our commitment to our people, our clients and our communities - business cannot operate effectively in a world hampered by poverty, inequality, conflict and environmental deterioration, and it is up to all of us to address these challenges, by helping to transform society and creating a better life for all.
