Legal market overview in Ethiopia

Ethiopian law firms tend to be led by a sole partner, who is frequently supported by a number of senior lawyers, including sector specialists. The increasing importance of the Ethiopian economy has led to domestic firms becoming more integrated with the international profession. Mehrteab Leul & Associates is part of the DLA Piper Africa network and Mesfin Tafesse & Associates Law Office (MTA) is a member of the Africa Legal Network. In 2019, Aman Assefa and Associates Law Office entered into an alliance with South Africa-headquartered Bowmans.
