A little about us and what we do as a law firm network

Established in 1993, LEX Africa is a legal Alliance of leading African law firms managed by South African member Werksmans Attorneys for the purpose of advising local and international clients on their trade, business, investment and other activities in Africa.

We are proud to be the first and largest African legal Alliance with a Pan African legal team of more than 700 lawyers providing cross-border and local African legal services for clients. Our track record speaks to our experience, expertise and success over the years, being consistently ranked as a Band 1 Leading Regional law firm Network by Chambers and Partners.

This year, LEX Africa proudly celebrates 30 years of its existence, and we thank our lawyers, clients and friends who have contributed to our success.

Looking to the future, we will continue to provide world class legal services, empower our lawyers and encourage sustainability, diversity, inclusivity and collaboration between our lawyers. These principles have guided us in building successful long-term partnerships with members and clients since our formation in 1993.
