Law firm in Zambia | Corpus Legal Practitioners

Overview:

Corpus remains a premier commercial law firm in Zambia, focused on guiding local and international clients through complex financial transactions, government and regulatory matters, corporate compliance, dispute resolution, and other legal issues.  Clients seek out Corpus because of its depth of experience in handling complex matters of Zambian law, its practical approach to solving legal problems, and its commitment to upholding international standards of excellence in our work.

Many of the issues Corpus addresses are first-of-their-kind in Zambia, where the legal and regulatory regime is still developing. In recent years, Corpus has advised on numerous novel matters including financial derivatives, repurchases transactions, securities offerings and regulation, to large-scale debt restructuring, solar energy regulation, international arbitration.  Corpus’ international orientation and experience informs the solutions it provides, and the size of its team (the largest of any firm in Zambia) allows for the degree of specialization necessary to handle complex and novel matters.
