We have substantial experience in Africa-related disputes acting for both corporates and individuals in complex litigation, arbitration, investigations and regulatory matters.


We combine our legal expertise with a thorough understanding of the commercial, economic and political environment to secure the best possible outcome for our clients.

Commercial Litigation

We act for African governments, corporates, individuals and financial institutions in complex, high-value commercial litigation.


International Arbitration

We are well placed to service disputes connected with Africa and our team has extensive experience of advising clients across the continent. Many UK law firms will claim a practice in African disputes; few can point to the depth and breadth of experience that our specialist International Arbitration team possesses.


We act in some of the world’s largest fraud investigations and have in-depth experience of dealing with all aspects of bribery, corruption, asset recovery, tax evasion, money laundering and the manipulation of financial markets.

Fraud and Financial Crime


We have unrivalled experience in representing pilots, crew, passengers and their families in international aviation accidents in Africa. Our work ranges from group actions against leading African airlines to smaller incidents involving helicopters and light aircraft. Getting to the truth of what happened so lessons can be learned sits at the heart of what we do for our clients.
