Five new members join Eversheds Africa Law Institute which now comprises 23 African firms

  • United Kingdom


    The Eversheds Africa Law Institute (EALI), an organisation designed to share best practices and promote the highest standards of legal service across Africa, has welcomed five new member law firms at the inaugural EALI Summit in Paris this week.

    The new firms; Advocats HK in Benin, Avocats Comores in Comoros, Nbendera and Nkhono in Malawi, K Solutions and Partners in Rwanda, and Pardiwalla Twomey Lablanche in the Seychelles; join members from 17 countries (Angola, Benin, Cameroon, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sudan and Tunisia) which have already signed up to EALI. This takes the total number of members of the EALI to 23 in 21 countries.

    As part of the firm’s Pan-African strategy, EALI is a unique forum on the African continent which allows member law firms in Africa to access training, secondment and knowledge sharing programmes for lawyers and clients while fostering commercial opportunities on a regional and international basis.

    The first EALI Summit was launched in Paris this week, with representatives from member firms attending to network with colleagues and share best practice in areas such as dispute management, inbound investment in to Africa and client relationship management. A number of further activities will be launched for clients and member firms in the coming weeks. The Africa Group and Eversheds Africa Law Institute (EALI) are headed by Boris Martor.

    Boris Martor said:

    “EALI goes from strength to strength as more firms sign up to collaborate and share best practice across Africa. This is an exciting time as we continue to be greeted with enthusiasm from our existing EALI member firms and our newest members from Benin, Comoros, Malawi, Rwanda and the Seychelles.”

    Eversheds launched its Pan-African strategy and the EALI in October 2013. Since the launch, the firm has joined up with firms in South Africa, Mauritius and Tunisia, and has also announced plans to sponsor a new Pan-African OHADA law diploma at two universities in Paris, a unique Pan-African organisation for harmonisation of business laws which has been adopted by 17 West and Central African nations. The first EALI summit for clients will be held in September 2014.
