Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr (CDH) continues to deliver a high level of bespoke solutions to clients in the fast evolving and increasingly complex energy and infrastructure space.

The latest results from the IFLR1000’s 2016 guide to Energy and infrastructure place the firm in three major practice areas that are key to delivering solutions for clients doing energy and infrastructure deals in Africa. It is an indication of how the firm can bring a broad cross-section of skills to bear on an array of complex problems, rather than simply relying on one or two individual experts in only one area of the market.

IFLR1000’s 2016 guide to Energy & infrastructure recognised CDH as a Tier 2 firm in the Energy, Infrastructure and Mining practice areas. The firm is also acknowledged in IFLR1000’s 2016 guide to Corporate and Finance in the Banking, Capital Markets, M&A and Project Finance practice areas.

“CDH last year embarked on a strategy of focusing more on its core capabilities, harnessing cross-functional capability and driving home the results for clients that are operating in an increasingly risky landscape. Being recognised consistently across our core practice areas to clients in the energy and infrastructure space is therefore a very important gauge, showing us we are maintaining extremely high standards in many specialised fields,” says CDH CEO Brent Williams.

Furthermore, five of the firm’s partners in the Energy and infrastructure practice areas were recognised as Leading Lawyers in their fields, including Head of Practice Jay Govender; with one of our lawyers named a Rising Star.

The 2016 survey is the most in depth research the IFLR1000 has ever undertaken into the energy and infrastructure markets, comprising 110 jurisdictions and with 890 law firms participating in the research.

“Infrastructure development and the growth of energy markets across Africa remain crucial to the continent’s future success. We look forward to assisting many more companies in the year ahead as exciting future deals unfold,” concludes Williams.
