Anjarwalla & Khanna (A&K), a Tanzanian corporate and commercial law firm based in Tanzania, acquired ATZ Law Chambers and expanded its leadership team.
The firm’s leadership team will include Partner, Geoffrey Dimoso and Director, Shemane Amin who joined in April and February respectively.
A&K says its vision to complement its robust local practice with the capability to service clients regionally.
“In recognition of the value that our clients have gained as a result of our cross-border collaboration with A&K Kenya, these developments will enable us to strengthen our regional offering by providing greater access to a broader pool of specialist teams and resources.”
In his new role, Mr Dimoso will work closely with the rest of the A&K Tanzania leadership team to ensure that the firm continues to provide exceptional service to clients in Tanzania and the wider region.
With over 15 years of experience in private practice, Dimoso headed the legal department and served as company secretary of the Commercial Bank of Africa (Tanzania), and previously, Azania Bank. Dimoso is a practicing Advocate of the High Court of Tanzania and holds a Master of Laws degree and a Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of Dar es Salaam. He is certified as a director by the Commonwealth Centre for Corporate Governance (Kenya) and the Institute of Directors (Tanzania), and is a member of various professional bodies, including the Tanganyika Law Society and the East African Law Society.
Tasked with managing the firm’s client experience and overseeing operations, Ms. Amin joined A&K Tanzania from Philip Morris where she held a dual management role as the Manager for Corporate Affairs and the Manager for Commercial, Strategy and Planning.
Prior to that, she worked as a Corporate Advisor at Mohammed Enterprises Tanzania Limited, where she oversaw complex corporate transactions. Ms. Amin started her legal career in the United States, where she worked for law firm Brown Rudnick LLP. She is a graduate of Boston University School of Law, where she obtained a Juris Doctor degree, after graduating from Duke University with a Bachelor of Arts degree on full scholarship from the Robertson Scholars Program.
“We are confident that the rebranding and entry of our new team members and our offering to clients in Tanzania and across Africa will be bolstered. Similarly, we remain grateful to our clients and other key stakeholders whose support has continually facilitated our growth,” said the law firm.
