LEX Africa is pleased, to once again be ranked as a Band 1 Leading Regional Law Firm Network – Africa Wide by Chambers and Partners!
Chambers and Partners is an independent research company operating across 200 jurisdictions delivering detailed rankings and insight into the world’s leading lawyers.
Chambers empowers organisations to make informed decisions when selecting legal services, saving time and resources and reducing risk.
The research team had the following comments on LEX Africa: “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 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.”
Apart from the ranking of the alliance, our member firms did amazingly well, as there were 48 member firm rankings and 97 individual lawyer rankings across many practice areas. There were many new rankings as well and we feel extremely proud of our members.
