Our lawyers in Zimbabwe are at the forefront of advising the infrastructure, construction and transport sector, working with clients who invest in, own, operate, manage or provide services to infrastructure assets.
From the roads which transport our goods, to the telecommunications which keep us connected, world class infrastructure provides the foundations to create jobs, grow business and connect people with essential services.
Our experience spans public transport, renewable energy, waste, defense, education, healthcare as well as social infrastructure and leisure, rail, roads, bridges, aviation, shipping and ports, among others.

As a Corporate Law firm in Zimbabwe we are approached by various clients and potential clients who seek our guidance, not only on the general regulatory and compliance framework in Zimbabwe, but also on areas of opportunity that we see in the Zimbabwean economy.
Zimbabwe’s industries have faced significant challenges over the last 20 years, with the ultimate result being that production in Zimbabwe has suffered immensely; with high levels of cheaper imports from neighbouring countries, resulting in a shrinking of Zimbabwe’s fiscus and a liquidity crisis, being the main by-products of these challenges.
Zimbabwe is a country endowed with investment opportunities for both domestic and international investors.
