Global law firms’ Africa push to be recognised at Legal Week’s African Legal Awards

Baker McKenzie, Hogan Lovells, DLA Piper and White & Case in the running to be named International Law Firm of the Year

Baker McKenzie is in the running to retain the prestigious International Law Firm of the Year title at the African Legal Awards after the 2018 finalists were revealed.

To retain the 2017 award, which was collected by Johannesburg managing partner Morne van der Merwe (pictured), Bakers must see off competition from Hogan Lovells, DLA Piper and White & Case to be named as the global firm making the biggest impact on Africa’s burgeoning legal landscape.
