    07-03-2014

    Global Law firm Eversheds has welcomed 10 new members to the Eversheds Africa Law Institute (EALI), an innovative platform for collaboration and best legal practice across Africa, taking the total of EALI African firms up to 33.

    EALI is a unique forum 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. Launched in October 2013 with 14 member firms, EALI has experienced rapid growth since its inception, and has now a network of 33 members in 37 offices across 31 African countries.

    The 10 new EALI firms are: Eva Caldeira Marques in Cape Verde, Cabinet Thomas Dingamgoto in Chad, Martinet & Martinet in Djibouti, Sarwat A. Shahid Law Firm in Egypt, Fikadu Law Office in Ethopia, Bikalou Avocats in Gabon, Liberian Legal Service International, Inc in Liberia, SCP Yankouri in Niger, SCP Akakpo in Togo and Dube, Manikai & Hwacha Legal Practitioners in Zimbabwe. The firms will join the existing 23 member firms, including Eversheds’ hubs in Mauritius, South Africa and Tunisia.

    EALI members are top firms in their jurisdictions and will bring to the firm both local expertise and capability to continue offering clients excellence in service delivery through the largest law firm African network.

    Boris Martor, Head of Eversheds’ Africa Group, said:

    “We have seen phenomenal growth since launching our Pan-Africa strategy late last year. Not only are we rapidly achieving our objectives of establishing hubs in key African regions, but we have also received an overwhelming response to EALI – our innovative platform to share best practice across the region. We believe that EALI is a unique model and the largest legal network of its kind in Africa and we look forward to continue building on the success that we have seen since its launch.”
