Bowmans recognised for standout contribution on complex legal matters

23 April 2023

Forty-five of the firm’s lawyers received 49 individual rankings with five included in the prestigious ‘hall of fame’ list; 26 named ‘leading individuals’; 10 recognised as ‘next generation partners’; and four included in the ‘rising stars’ category.

According to Legal 500 EMEA editor, Ella Marshall, their researchers contact over 300 000 clients globally, ‘to obtain feedback on which law firms meet the criteria required by today’s in-house counsel and business leaders’ and, ‘all of this is used to benchmark each law firm versus competitors in the practice area in question.’

According to the report:

  • Bowmans’ ‘experienced M&A team facilitates complex, high-value deals, often with significance for both the domestic and wider sub-Saharan African economy’ (Commercial, Corporate and M&A, South Africa);
  • The firm is ‘ known for its involvement in complex domestic and cross-border finance transactions particularly across the banking, financial services, telecoms and food and beverages industries’ (Banking, Finance and Capital Markets, Kenya);
  • Bowmans’ Dispute Resolution Department ‘represents high-profile clients in relation to a wide range of disputes, including insurance, public law, corporate investigations, shipping, construction, and employment’, and has ‘an especially strong reputation for its commercial litigation and arbitration offering’ (Dispute Resolution, South Africa);
  • The offering at the firm’s Mauritius practice ‘extends from corporate matters to capital markets, banking and finance and private equity’. The team is ‘well known for structuring global business vehicles for funds and financial services providers’ (Leading Firms, Mauritius);
  • Bowmans’ ‘full-service practice in Tanzania works alongside the firm’s offices across the continent, delivering services to local and international clients with planned investments or existing operations in Tanzania across the energy, mining, and telecoms sectors’ (Leading Firms, Tanzania); and
  • The firm’s Zambia practice is ‘well placed to advise on high value and complex M&A transactions across the region’ and is ‘particularly strong in litigation and disputes concerning a range of issues’ (Leading Firms, Zambia).

Chairman and senior partner, Ezra Davids, says, ‘We are very proud of this hard-earned recognition and humbled by the feedback that our clients provided during the research process. The large, complex and strategically important work that they entrust us with makes these notable accolades possible. The research results serve as confirmation that our client-centric, uncompromising commitment to quality legal services and  ‘one firm’ approach is one of the many reasons that our clients choose to work with us across the continent’.
