Manokore Attorneys, a Zimbabwean full-service business law firm with strengths in mergers and acquisitions, energy and infrastructure projects and other commercial transactions, has joined DLA Piper Africa as the member firm in Zimbabwe.

Lloyd Manokore, Partner at Manokore Attorneys, said: “The relationship with DLA Piper has enabled us to greatly expand our footprint beyond our national boundaries. Zimbabwe is currently ripe for investment: its central geographical location in southern Africa makes it well positioned as a trade hub, and there are many opportunities in the area of public private partnerships and energy-related mandates.” 

“The ability to draw on DLA Piper’s extensive international legal network means we have an increased capacity to service an international community of investors. We look forward to providing on-going professional advice and support to the private and government sectors in Zimbabwe and beyond,” he said.

Their specialised areas of operation include investment inflows from foreign capital source markets and a comprehensive understanding of reinvestment in different spheres of the commercial sector.

This development sees DLA Piper Africa further strengthen its position, which now comprises members in 20 countries on the continent.

James Kamau, Chairman of DLA Piper Africa, said: “This is an extremely exciting time for DLA Piper Africa as we consolidate our position across Africa. We know that doing business across Africa means navigating local and regional diversity, differing laws, and a keen understanding of the way the markets operate, and how business is done.” 

“Our formalization of the relationship with Manokore Attorneys, built on a number of years working together, will enable us to offer the very best service to regional and international clients operating in Zimbabwe."
