Stephenson Harwood named 'Africa’s Strategic Partner of the Year'


Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP has won 'Africa's Strategic Partner of the Year' award, for the second year running, at the 2017 Law Digest Awards.

The awards, held in Lagos, Nigeria, recognise and honour excellence in the African legal services market, highlighting the contributions of individual lawyers, law firms and in-house teams operating throughout Africa.

"This is an outstanding achievement for the practice and demonstrates the strength of our reputation in the market," said Stephenson Harwood partner and head of the Africa practice Kamal Shah. "This prestigious award is testament to the team's hard work and commitment, and it is pleasing to see the practice being commended, for the second year running."

Stephenson Harwood's leading Africa practice regularly advises on key mandates of wide economic, political and strategic importance across Africa, and are stand-out specialists in arbitration and litigation, asset finance, capital markets, fraud and asset tracing, oil and gas, projects, and infrastructure and renewables. The firm has a strong working relationship with leading local law firms in Africa, and a well-developed secondment programme which has seen the placement of more than 50 secondees, from leading African law firms and corporate entities based in Africa.
