Our values

We strongly and unapologetically believe in the mantra – people first. We are especially proud of the breadth and depth of the commercial relationships we have built globally, regionally and locally over our 40 year journey.

We are not just lawyers, but indeed “friends” to our clients. With us, clients get:

  • Integrity
  • Honesty
  • Professionalism
  • Excellence
  • Humility

More than a one-time legal partner

We care for our clients by sharing our on-the-ground knowledge, way beyond one-time engagements. We do this in many ways including:

  • Our firm newsletter: a quarterly publication in which we offer legal insights on various areas such as tax, land law and employment
  • Legal alerts: these are briefings we give our clients, on topical legal developments as they arise. For instance we recently did one on the new Companies Act 2015
  • Partnerships: we hold events with other third parties, through strategic partnerships and often invite our clients to events, where we feel there is some convergence
  • Short bespoke training seminars: especially for our clients and their teams on a diverse range of legal topics, on a need to basis
