Dentons set for South African alliance

Denton Wilde Sapte is preparing to launch an alliance with 13-partner South African firm Glyn Marais.

The firm has already established links with firms in nine African countries, including Botswana, Kenya, Mauritius, Uganda and Zambia.

The move gives Dentons its first base in South Africa. Glyn Marais has offices in Sandton, Cape Town and Pretoria. Dentons’ ­international presence also covers the Gulf and the CIS, both of which are significant growth regions for the firm.
