Anjarwalla & Khanna is proud to announce that it was named African Law Firm of the Year by Legal Week for the third year running.
This award sets out to recognise exceptional performance from a law firm in Sub-Saharan Africa across a number of categories. The winner had to demonstrate that they are not only leaders in their chosen market, but that they are market-leading when it comes to legal expertise, strategic vision, business winning, client care, client loyalty and employee development.
What makes this award even more special is that Anjarwalla & Khanna has won it for the last three years in a row and four times in the five years that this has been an award category.
Akash Devani and Glenda Irvine-Smith attended the gala event in Johannesburg last week and were delighted to bring home the award.
A&K also won the law firm Innovation Award for the first time. The award seeks to identify projects and initiatives that genuinely break new ground in the delivery of legal services. This was in recognition of the firm’s relentless drive to remain at the cutting edge as illustrated by the automation and process improvement project that A&K has been implementing in the past year.
“Winning these awards is a reflection of the tremendous progress we have made in so many aspects of our business – from the recruitment and development of our teams, to the growth in quality and scope of our client base and work. We have worked very hard as a law firm and as a member of ALN to continue to strive for excellence and innovation in the practice of law across Africa” said Karim Anjarwalla, Managing Partner of Anjarwalla & Khanna.
A&K was a finalist in another four award categories, Competition and Regulatory Team of the Year, Employment Team of the Year, Transportation and Infrastructure Team of the Year and Environmental, Energy and Natural Resources Team of the Year.
The Africa Legal Awards is hosted annually by Legal Week and the Corporate Counsel Association of South Africa and seeks to recognise the accomplishments of the African legal sector over the last 12 to 18 months. The judging panel comprises leading figures in the legal and business community.
