The firm

CRB Africa Legal is a leading Tanzanian full service commercial law practice. We are committed to delivering services in a rapid, responsive and proactive manner and we pride ourselves in the technical excellence and depth of transactional experience of our lawyers.

CRB Africa Legal enjoys a close association with Africa Legal in South Africa. Our close working relationship has been achieved by the permanent secondment by Africa Legal of two senior English qualified lawyers to our Dar es Salaam offices. Our firms pool their know-how and have developed an extensive training program for our lawyers.

Through this association, CRB Africa Legal is able to offer clients a responsive and expert service delivered to the highest professional and ethical standards.

Africa Legal is the Africa specialised division of Deneys Reitz Inc, one of South Africa´s largest and most reputable law firms, which has over 200 lawyers. As a seamless part of Deneys Reitz´s services, Africa Legal offers expertise under English and South African law throughout the African continent and has advised on transactions involving major international and South African financial, corporate and private equity institutions involving some 40 African jurisdictions.
