We are pleased that our disputes resolution team has won two of the three prestigious awards it had been nominated for at the 2022 edition of the African Arbitration Awards held in Kigali, Rwanda; the Leading Case Counsel Team 2022 award and, through our associate James Kariuki, the Young Arbitration Practitioner of the Year 2022 Award.
In addition, DLA Piper Africa, Kenya's Senior Partner Kamau Karori was shortlisted and recognised as a finalist in the African Arbitrator of the Year category.
The African Arbitration Awards were hosted on the sidelines of the annual East African International Arbitration Conference (EAIAC) 2022. The Africa Arbitration Awards which were incorporated in 2019, aim to celebrate, recognise and honor outstanding practitioners and leaders in the Africa arbitration ecosystem. This platform forms part of the EAIAC organisers' vision of building international arbitration capacity and expanding Africa's networks as they promote, profile, and celebrate Africa's success in international arbitration.
