ALN Announces New Member in Botswana


We are delighted to announce that ALN has a new member in Botswana. While Desai Law Group (DLG) is a new player in the market, the team behind it, led by Founding and Managing Partner Rizwan Desai, has decades of experience and is comprised of leading lawyers well-known in the Botswana market and abroad.

Rizwan is supported by three partners, each highly respected in their fields of expertise. The firm is now a full-service law firm divided into specialised teams structured to cover a broad range of practice areas. DLG recently joined forces with the preeminent real estate firm of Akheel Jinabhai to bolster its offering in this growing sector, making it one of the largest law firms in Botswana.

DLG is focussed on being a “refreshingly and reassuringly” different firm and offers clients a modern and innovative approach to service delivery. The firm already has an impressive client base and is finding new ways to take advantage of Botswana’s position as the gateway to the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and other African countries, for clients with regional aspirations

As Botswana continues to diversify its economy, DLG will be able to leverage the combined expertise of ALN and offer players in the market a unique range of legal services, with emphasis on the country’s burgeoning agricultural, transport, manufacturing and financial sectors.

ALN is delighted to have DLG as a member given our shared vision for client service delivery, which combines integrity, excellence and a solution-driven approach. Furthermore, we are proud to have a presence in a country which is recognised worldwide as one of most stable democracies in Africa and for its recognition and adherence to the rule of law.

If you have any questions about DLG or would like us to introduce you to any of the partners at DLG, please contact ALN at
