Leading France-based international law firm, Gide Loyrette Nouel (Gide), and leading African law firm, Bowmans, have today announced they have signed a strategic co-operation agreement that will boost each firm’s ability to provide legal services to their clients doing business in Africa.

The two firms will work closely together to deepen their ties with current and potential clients and to share their knowledge of the African market. Gide particularly brings its offices, connections and long-standing experience working in West and North Africa, principally in francophone countries, while Bowmans brings its complementary strengths in Southern and Eastern Africa, principally in English-speaking countries


Last but not least, this is a great opportunity for both firms to offer their lawyers multiple opportunities to collaborate and to increase their reach across the continent, as they share the same values and standards of professional excellence.

Bowmans senior partner: Kenya, Richard Harney, says: ‘This is a very exciting development. We have a long-standing relationship with Gide, which is a fellow Lex Mundi member, and have worked with their lawyers for a number of years. The co-operation agreement strengthens this relationship and will help us to better serve our clients in West and North Africa, with particular emphasis on francophone countries.’


Jean-François Levraud, managing partner of Gide says: ‘We have known the Bowmans team for more than a decade. We both share the same values and professional excellence. We have a long history of successful joint assignments that have always benefited our clients. This next step in our co-operation will allow us to support our clients in their most complex pan-African transactions.’
