What is latin for “Hakuna Matata?” Law firms expanding into Africa.

Have you ever been in a situation where several unexpected things happen around the same time which gives you pause to consider, “there may be something there there?”

In the last couple of weeks, I have been working with a fund that invests primarily in Africa, have been approached by some top notch candidates looking to join practices with a foothold in Africa, and in recent news, Eversheds added 10 members to its African network, the Eversheds Africa Law Institute, bringing the total number of firms to 33 and boasting 37 offices in 31 African countries.

Is Africa going to be a future hub for international law firms? While many are flocking or have flocked to South America and Asia, might Africa be the next big market for legal services?

Interesting, no?
