We were devastated to hear of the passing of Rob Legh on Thursday evening.  It has been a privilege to work with Rob on various projects over the years, and to observe not only his keen legal and strategic thinking, but also his kind and generous manner.  He has made an immense contribution of his time and his talents in helping to develop the field of competition and industrial policy throughout Africa. 

We can imagine what a fraught time this must have been over the past two months when Rob was so ill, and such a shock to hear of his sudden passing last week.  Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and all of his colleagues at Bowmans, and throughout the legal fraternity.
