LEX Africa is pleased, to once again be ranked as a Band 1 Leading Regional Law Firm Network – Africa Wide by Chambers and Partners!
“Since its inception in 1993, Lex Africa has displayed considerable commitment to the African continent and its mission of developing professional legal skills and business. Its addition of firms in North and francophone Africa in recent years has bolstered its already sweeping coverage of the continent and cemented its presence across all the major language speaking regions. The core focus of the network lies in its six practice groups, including banking and finance, competition, M&A and dispute resolution. The network is increasingly focused on integration between its member firms, utilising events and secondment programmes to foster common professional values, approaches and standards, as well as to build deep professional relationships. In addition, the network continues to produce informative publications on operating in Africa, including its guides on mining and on insolvency and business restructuring.” – Chambers and Partners
