Leading firms Tier 1

ATZ Law Chambers has a deep connection to leading Kenyan firm Anjarwalla & Khanna, which is a major regional player in East Africa, and brings a number of large engagements to the firm, and is also a member of the highly reputed Africa Legal Network. The group is also able to leverage the wider firm expertise and resources of its Nairobi and Mombasa colleagues to great effect, notably in the mining and telecoms sectors. The 'very good and responsive' practice has a particular forte in mining sector matters, including issues surrounding the local content laws and has handled a series of significant compliance matters in the telecoms sector, particularly pertaining to a number of senior executive arrests. The team had a key role in advising US corporate Deere & Company on its acquisition of Wirtgen Group, which involved reviewing the operations of both companies in Tanzania  and advising on competition notifications. The Dar es Salaam office also teamed up with Anjarwalla & Khanna and other firms in advising a consortium led by AfricInvest Capital Partners and others on its equity investment in Britam Holdings, the Kenyan-listed insurance and asset management group. The 'senior partners are very hands on and involved in the business' and the firm 'has specialists that handle specific niche market sectors'.
