ALN is an independent alliance of leading law firms in Africa. It is the largest and most integrated grouping of its kind in Africa, with close working relationships across its members and an established network of “Best Friends” across the continent.
By being based on the ground we offer added value through our understanding of how business operates in the relevant jurisdictions, our connections with local regulators, and our experience dealing with local issues. With ALN you get the benefit of internationally-trained lawyers who live and work where the deals are happening. ALN member firms are singularly placed to provide local, regional and cross-border legal services in all the ALN jurisdictions, and have the ability to manage deals across jurisdictions using a “one-stop shop” approach.
Each ALN member firm is a recognised leader on the continent with a strong track record in advising domestic, regional and international clients on commercial and legal issues. Our members offer a deep understanding of the sectors and industries in which clients operate as well as the risks and opportunities of doing business in Africa’s rapidly changing markets.
