Global giant grows even larger in Africa

by |

DLA Piper Africa has a new member firm in Zimbabwe.

The global firm has welcomed Manokore Attorneys as its member firm in the country. A full-service corporate law firm, Manokore Attorneys is known for its work in M&A, energy and infrastructure projects, and commercial transactions.

“This is an extremely exciting time for DLA Piper Africa as we consolidate our position across Africa. We know that doing business across Africa means navigating local and regional diversity, differing laws, and a keen understanding of the way the markets operate, and how business is done,” said James Kamau, DLA Piper Africa chair.

“Our formalization of the relationship with Manokore Attorneys, built on a number of years working together, will enable us to offer the very best service to regional and international clients operating in Zimbabwe,” he said.

With the move, DLA Piper Africa now has member firms in 20 countries on the continent. Lloyd Manokore said that his firm’s relationship with DLA Piper has enabled Manokore Attorneys to expand its reach beyond Zimbabwe.

“Zimbabwe is currently ripe for investment: its central geographical location in southern Africa makes it well positioned as a trade hub, and there are many opportunities in the area of public private partnerships and energy-related mandates,” he said.

With access to DLA Piper’s extensive international legal network, Manokore Attorneys has boosted its capacity to service an international community of investors, he said.
