FB Attorneys

FB Attorneys continues to handle many of the larger transactions and disputes in the market, while experiencing a significant increase in compliance work, particularly for foreign clients. The firm has a significant share of the oil and gas market in Tanzania, advising a range of oil majors on their interests there, for example assisting Total with the construction of a pipeline from Uganda to Tanzania. Moreover, it is at the forefront of the mining industry, acting for ā€˜some of the biggest mining players in Tanzaniaā€™ according to a rival lawyer: in a recent highlight, the team advised Cannes Africa Resources on the acquisition of various mining rights in Tanzania. Agriculture and financial services are also key sectors for the firm. Dispute resolution continues to account for roughly half of the groupā€™s practice, with a number of cases relating to tax, antitrust, shareholder disputes and asset recoveries. The firm is also active in disputes with regulatory authorities, including regulators for the energy, electricity, water and transport sectors, and also has a growing international arbitration practice. FAyaz Bhojani heads the corporate department and has an especially strong record in high-value oil and gas transactions and mining industry deals; he is recognised for both advisory and contentious work. Gaudiosus Ishengoma is a leader in litigation and senior figure Mustafa Chandoo is prominent in appellate court work.
