Cross-Border Litigation

As one of the most active law firms in Africa, we combine in-country litigation teams with the cross-border perspective of a global litigation practice. 

Globalization has brought ever-increasing opportunities for international commerce, connecting people, products and businesses across the world. It also exposes organizations to new levels of legal, regulatory, political, cultural, financial and reputational complexity and risk across multiple jurisdictions. 

Wherever your dispute arises in Africa or around the world, our experienced sector-focused teams stand ready to help you secure an outcome in keeping with your business strategy. 

Local insight, global reach: with lawyers in 20 African countries, our teams understand the political, legal, cultural and regulatory issues in the region, bringing this experience to bear in cross-border litigation. 

At the same time, our global Africa team comprises more than 200 lawyers in Johannesburg, Casablanca, London, New York, Paris, Dubai, Perth, Hong Kong and Beijing. Because we are part of one of the world’s biggest law firms, clients also have fast access to the resources and experience of one of the largest litigation practices in the world, with more than 1,800 professional lawyers.
