Firm Overview

Bowmans is a leading 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 independence and the quality of legal services it provides.

The firm delivers integrated legal services to clients throughout Africa from six offices (Cape Town, Dar es Salaam, Durban, Johannesburg, Kampala and Nairobi) in four countries (Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda).

Bowmans works closely with leading Nigerian firm Udo Udoma & Belo-Osagie, and Mozambique-based boutique firm, Taciana Peão Lopes & Advogados Associados. It also has strong relationships with other leading law firms across the rest of Africa and is a member of Lex Mundi, a global network with more than 160 independent law firm members across the globe.

Bowmans’ expertise is frequently recognised by independent research organisations. The firm has been named African Legal Adviser of the Year by DealMakers for the last four consecutive years and South African Law Firm of the Year for 2018 in the Chambers Africa Awards for Excellence. Most recently, Bowmans was named African Law Firm of the Year – Large Practice at the African Legal Awards hosted by Legal Week and the Corporate Counsel Association of South Africa.
