LexAfrica: The First and Largest African Legal Alliance

"The qualifications and background of the senior and junior partners is impressive; they have a strong presence across all Africa with their network and every person we talked to has good things to say about them."IFLR 1000: Guide to the World's Leading Financial Law Firms.

 

Established in 1993, LEXAfrica was and remains Africa’s first true network of leading law firms. It arose from a gap in the market for a one stop centre for African law firms to provide clients (both local and international) with legal and business advice in whichever jurisdiction they find themselves, particularly in relation to expanding Africa-to-Africa business. LEXAfrica is recognised as a Leading Network by Chambers and Partners: Guide to the World's Leading Lawyers for Business.

The LEXAfrica legal network was a trailblazer in identifying the untapped potential of the African market and today the LEXAfrica law community is the largest legal network in Africa. It is comprised of leading law practices in twenty eight (28) African countries with access to all the fifty four (54) countries in Africa and, at present, has over five hundred (500) lawyers across Africa.

Each LEXAfrica member firm specializes in corporate and commercial law and dispute resolution combined with intimate knowledge of the unique local customs, inherent business practices, languages and traditions of each country.

Each LEX Africa member firm has been internationally recognised and ranked by Chambers and Partners: Guide to the World's Leading Lawyers for Business and IFLR 1000: Guide to the World's Leading Financial Law Firms, the premier benchmark league tables for lawyers worldwide.

Katende, Ssempebwa & Co. Advocates is honoured to be the esteemed local partner and representative of this elite network in Uganda.

This healthy collaboration and continuing relationship with leading professionals within and outside Uganda has greatly enhanced the quality of the firm's services, and tremendously improved the firm's professional profile and the talents of its lawyers.

On the 28th of May, 2015 KATS hosted a LEXAfrica cocktail in honour of 24 (twentyfour) delegates from the LEXAfrica member countries and local invited guests at the Victoria Hall, at the Kampala Serena. The African themed decor perfectly complemented the exquisite guest list. It was a splendid affair; a see-and-be-scene evening of networking. The Vice President of Uganda, His Excellency Right Honourable Edward Ssekandi and the Attorney General of Uganda; Honourable Fred Ruhindi were the Guests of Honour at the soiree.
