Documents and mail

We achieved a major milestone in late 2015 with the opening of the firm's Johannesburg office - our first office in Africa.

Supported by a number of South African partners who are recognised market leaders in their respective fields of expertise, our office advises inbound and outbound investors across a broad range of sectors and industries in the Southern Africa region and Africa more broadly.

The office is expanding, with a number of Africa specialist partners and associates from across our global network having moved across to Johannesburg. We are also in the process of recruiting additional high quality and talented South African lawyers. This expansion has further cemented our offering, and enables us to provide South African, English and French law advice from Johannesburg, covering transactions across Anglophone, Francophone and Lusophone Africa.

The combined strength of the Johannesburg partners and the firm's other Africa specialists located across our international platform means that we can provide a true on-the-ground pan-African offering, wherever you are doing business on the continent.
