South Africa is considered to be one of the most promising and sophisticated emerging markets. The combination of its diverse natural resources, modern infrastructure and the ease of doing business there have led to the region often being referred to as Africa's economic powerhouse.
We have been present in Africa for 55 years and pride ourselves on our ability to respond to client needs through our offices in South Africa. Our legacy in Africa through our combination in Kenya dates back to over a 100 years. In 2012 Dentons and KapdiTwala established an association that was considered 'a first-of-its-kind' between a tier 1 Black law firm and an international law firm. In 2014, Dentons together with KapdiTwala established Dentons in South Africa, with an office in Cape Town. In 2015 we opened our doors in Johannesburg and as a result we are now better able to service client needs in South Africa, while contributing to the changing face of business in the region.
Our South Africa team is an integral part of Dentons' Africa practice which serves clients across the globe, and advises on a wide range of matters including energy, natural resources, infrastructure, disputes, private equity and project finance. Our practitioners have advised some of the most trusted brands and leaders in their respective industries including Addax Petroleum, Alexkor SOC LTD, Engen Petroleum, Eskom Ltd, The Central Energy Fund, Old Mutual, The Strategic Fuel Fund.
Whether you are a South African company with interests beyond its borders or you are seeking to enter the South African market or other parts of Africa, Dentons can deliver business solutions wherever you need them.
