About Baker McKenzie

With more than 30 years of experience in the African market, we leverage our Firm's global footprint to provide first-class legal and commercial advice to foreign multinational investors in Africa, as well as some of Africa’s largest domestic companies. With regional hubs in Cairo, Casa... read moreblanca and Johannesburg, we offer a presence in Africa that few international law firms can match. Our lawyers advise clients in key growth industry sectors including finance, energy, mining & infrastructure, telecommunications, FMCG and healthcare. We act as transactional and international counsel for clients engaged in major projects, collaborating with colleagues across our global network to provide guidance on inbound and outbound investments. We have over 200 lawyers that work on Africa matters and we offer a combination of local knowledge and international perspective to help clients minimise risk and focus on business opportunities. Working with our African Relationship Firms to deliver a comprehensive service, we provide clients with the insight they need to overcome their legal, regulatory and market challenges. As market leaders in energy and infrastructure projects in Africa, we work on some of the most significant developments across the continent. Our achievements include advising Morocco's state-owned power utility on procuring and developing the country's 850 MW wind farm public-private partnership programme, acting for Angola state-owned oil company Sonangol on its US$7-billion development of a major oil refinery, and advising numerous lenders on Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme projects in South Africa. We were named "Environmental, Energy and Natural Resources Team of the Year" at the African Legal Awards 2016. This followed our success in 2015 when we were named "Banking, Finance & Restructuring Team of the Year" at the African Legal Awards for our work advising a syndicate of 34 lenders on African Export-Import Bank's largest ever term loan, which was noted for its complexity because it involved lenders in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa. Ranked third for pan-African M&A transactions by deal value, our Corporate/M&A group advise clients on major cross-border deals while our litigation, compliance, investigations and tax experts leverage their strong working relationships with regulators and other government officials to protect clients' interests. No matter the business or legal issue, we provide clients with the guidance and support they need to overcome the challenges of doing business in Africa and achieve their Africa-focused strategies, using our expertise across industry sectors and legal systems to help them pursue opportunities, achieve growth and manage risk in their business.
