DLA Piper has signed agreements with three African firms, expanding its Africa group network into Algeria, Burundi and Namibia.
Algerian firm BL & Associés, Burundi’s Rubeya & Co Advocates and Namibian outfit Ellis Shilengudwa all joined the network late last year, the firm confirmed today (17 January).
The additions bring the number of firms in the Africa group to 14, with countries covered including South Africa, Kenya and Botswana.
BL & Associés was recently spun out of French firm Lefèvre Pelletier & Associés, which still has its own office in Algeria. The firm fields two partners, including Mohamed Lanouar who will split his time between Paris and Algiers.
Meanwhile Rubeya & Co and Ellis Shilengudwa have been established for longer. Rubeya & Co was set up in 2000 and now has eight lawyers, focusing particularly on IP and competition, while Ellis Shilengudwa is a corporate and commercial firm established in 1997.
DLA Piper’s managing director of Europe and Africa Federico Sutti said the firm would continue to select “strategic partners” to add to its Africa network.
