Firm Overview

Bowmans is a leading Pan-African law firm. Its track record of providing domestic and cross-border legal services in the fields of corporate law, banking and finance law and dispute resolution, spans over a century.

With 400 specialised lawyers, Bowmans is differentiated by its geographical reach, independence and the quality of legal services it provides.

The firm delivers integrated legal services to clients throughout Africa from six offices (Antananarivo, Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg, Kampala and Nairobi) in four countries (Kenya, Madagascar, South Africa and Uganda) and provides coverage of francophone OHADA jurisdictions across the continent from its office in Madagascar.

Bowmans works closely with leading Nigerian firm, Udo Udoma & Belo-Osagie, which has offices in Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt, and has strong relationships with other leading law firms across the rest of Africa. It is a representative of Lex Mundi, a global association with more than 160 independent law firms in all the major centres across the globe.
