Complex working relationships among individuals, companies and other organisations means that disagreements are inevitable. This is particularly true when people from diverse cultures work together in a competitive marketplace. Thus, the risk that cross-border business activities will result in disputes in unfamiliar jurisdictions is real.

We are proud to be regarded as one of the pre-eminent dispute resolution teams in Africa.

The size of our team means that we are able to offer a high degree of specialisation across a variety of areas, with particular experience in:

Our clients include large national clients in African jurisdictions where we have representation as well as multinationals and international law firms acting on their behalf, non-government entities, governments, state-owned entities and financial institutions.
