With the current challenges and uncertainty facing the world’s leading economies, emerging market economies are increasingly attractive to international investors. In particular, Africa, a region previously often overlooked by international investors for various reasons, is the subject of growing international interest.

Harneys, with its long established focus on the BRICS and other emerging market economies, has established a practice group dedicated to the African continent. The Africa Group comprises experienced lawyers practising all aspects of corporate, finance and funds law in the jurisdictions on which Harneys advises and also includes representatives from Harneys Fiduciary.

The formation of the Africa Group demonstrates Harneys' commitment to Africa and distinguishes it from its peers. Harneys has extensive experience of working on Africa related transactions and this experience continues to grow.

Clients doing business in Africa and engaging the services of our Africa Group can expect:

While Harneys does not have a formal office in Africa, we have a representative presence in the region through Patrick Colegrave. Whilst officially part of our London office, Patrick spends much of his time working from southern Africa, and regularly travels across the continent to meet clients and contacts.
