We are legal specialists with unique African knowledge

Bowmans is a leading Pan-African law firm. Our track record of providing specialist legal services, both domestic and cross-border, in the fields of corporate law, banking and finance law and dispute resolution, spans over a century.

With seven offices in five African countries and over 400 specialised lawyers, we are differentiated by our geographical reach, independence and the quality of legal services we provide.

We draw on our unique knowledge of the African business environment and in-depth understanding of the socio-political climate to advise clients on a wide range of legal issues. Our aim is to assist our clients in achieving their objectives as smoothly and efficiently as possible while minimising the legal and regulatory risks.

Our clients include corporates, multinationals and state-owned enterprises across a range of industry sectors as well as financial institutions and governments.

Our expertise is frequently recognised by independent research organisations. We have been named Africa Legal Adviser by DealMakers for the last two consecutive years (2014 and 2015) and South African Law Firm of the Year for 2016 by the Who’s Who Legal. Most recently we won the Banking, Finance and Restructuring Team of the Year, the Employment Team of the Year, and the Property Team of the Year Awards at the prestigious African Legal Awards hosted by Legal Week and the Corporate Counsel Association of South Africa in 2016.
