Infrastructure, Construction and Transport

Our lawyers bring vast experience and international multidisciplinary resources to infrastructure matters, across Africa and around the world, through our global platform. 

Africa is home to some of the fastest-growing economies in the world. This offers unique and exciting opportunities as well as challenges, particularly in the infrastructure sector. We have a track record working for all segments of the industry, advising on legal, strategic and regulatory matters across the African continent. 

This includes major infrastructure projects, among them residential developments, transportation (roads, tunnels, bridges), light and heavy rail, ports, airports, telecoms, public and social infrastructure, and water and waste systems. 

Already one of the most active law firms in Africa, we understand the issues, risks and opportunities specific to the sector, including the different stakeholder perspectives, to help bring matters to a successful conclusion. 

Local insight, global reach: with teams in 20 African countries, our people understand the political, legal, cultural and regulatory issues that shape infrastructure in the region. 

Our global Africa team itself comprises more than 200 lawyers in Johannesburg, Casablanca, London, New York, Paris, Dubai, Perth, Hong Kong and Beijing. 

We combine an unrivalled presence in Africa with the resources and capabilities of one of the world’s leading business law firms.  As a result, we can deliver fully integrated cross-border legal services, drawing on our local and international expertise across legal disciplines to support our clients. That means we are able to help our clients achieve their strategic goals.
