The Legal 500 publication has released its 2015 Report reaffirming Bowman Gilfillan Africa Group’s (BGAG) position as a leading pan-African legal services provider to corporates, financial institutions and the public sector across Africa. With offices in South Africa, Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Madagascar, and an association with Udo Udoma & Bela-Osagie in Nigeria, BGAG excels in rankings such as The Legal 500, which analyse the capabilities of law firms across the world and assess the strength of those who provide the most cutting edge and innovative advice to corporate counsel.
The Report notes that 10 lawyers from BGAG have been recognised as leading practitioners in a variety of categories by practice and a further 25 have received notable mentions. In addition, the group has also ranked in Tier 1 for Competition, Construction, Corporate M&A, Labour & Employment, Projects & Infrastructure, and Shipping & Transport.
Chairman, Rob Legh, expressed his delight at BGAG once again being acknowledged in this prestigious survey, “It is very rewarding to be recognised for our ongoing commitment to offering quality legal services to our clients throughout Africa. We are fortunate to attract leading lawyers and, in turn, sophisticated clients who find great value in what we do”. Client satisfaction is noted in the report with various quotes including, amongst others, that the group “fields a team of ‘top lawyers’ that stands out for its size and reputation, its understanding of each case, and for its ability to not over-complicate matters.” In addition, it “provides ‘a prompt and efficient service’, rooted in ‘a clear knowledge of the law’ and a ‘professional’ approach.”
