Bowman Gilfillan Africa Group includes approximately 400 lawyers across five countries. The Group has offices in Cape Town, Dar es Salaam, Gaborone, Johannesburg, Kampala and Nairobi. Our relationship firm in Nigeria, Udo Udoma & Bela-Osagie, has offices in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt. We also have strong relationships and work closely with law firms across the rest of Africa which enables us to provide or source the advice clients require in any African country, whether on a single country or a multi-jurisdictional basis.
Differences in law, regulation and business culture can significantly increase the risk and complexity of doing business in Africa. Our aim is to assist our clients in achieving their objectives as smoothly and efficiently as possible while minimising the legal and regulatory risks.
While reliable technical legal advice is always very important, the ability to deliver that advice in a coherent, relevant way combined with transaction management, structuring, negotiating and drafting skills is essential to the supply of high quality legal services. Bowman Gilfillan Africa Group delivers those services to the highest international standards throughout Africa.
Bowman Gilfillan Africa Group provides domestic and cross-border legal services to the highest international standards across Africa, through its offices in South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, its best friends relationship with Udo Udoma & Belo-Osagie in Nigeria and its strong relationships with law firms across the continent.
We act for corporations, financial institutions, state owned enterprises and governments in providing clear, relevant and timely legal advice in order to assist clients in achieving their objectives and managing their legal risks.
The strength and depth of all the Group’s practice area, geographical and sector specific teams are utilized to provide clients with the highest standards of service. In the cross-border arena the Group has extensive experience in resources, energy, infrastructure, financial institutions and consumer goods sectors.
