Kenya’s commercial legal firm MMC Africa Law is partnering with Africa’s international law firm ASAFO & CO to form MMC ASAFO to provide an integrated offering of top-tier legal services exclusively dedicated to the African continent.
“There is an increasing interest and opportunities in Africa, and this strategic direction is meant to provide clients in Africa with a competitive advantage through our combined experience and resources,’’ said MMC ASAFO East Africa Team Leader Mr. Edward Muriu.
Speaking during the launch of the partnership in Nairobi, Asafo & Co. founder and managing partner Pascal Agboyibor said that the partnership was key as more and more International firms are developing practices orientated towards the African continent.
“But the strength of our organization lies in the fact that we have an effective presence on the continent and staffed by high-level teams. This allows us to handle major, complex transactions and to be in a position to offer clients a rapid, integrated, value-added service,” Agboyibor said.
“Our teams have been instrumental in many of the most significant transactions on the continent in recent years, transactions that will help to shape Africa’s future,” he added.
MMC Asafo will be based in different offices, with a balanced presence in France and in the major African business hubs of Nairobi, Abidjan, Casablanca, and Johannesburg.
