Eversheds launches African Law Institute and boosts development of African operations

Eversheds has announced a new pan-African strategy, which will focus on setting up the Eversheds African Law Institute (EALI) and creating five key hub offices. 

EALI is an organisation designed to allow member law firms in Africa to access training and knowledge-sharing programmes while fostering commercial opportunities on a regional and international basis.

Firms in 14 countries have so far signed up as members of EALI. 

As part of the firm’s pan-African strategy, the firm has confirmed that it is in discussions to establish offices in the key markets of Tunisia, Morocco, Ghana, South Africa and Kenya over the coming months.
