LONDON – The London-based energy team of Bracewell & Giuliani was recognized as Energy and Natural Resources Team of the Year at The African Legal Awards 2014. This award mark’s the firm’s first recognition at The African Legal Awards.
The African Legal Awards seek to recognise exceptional achievement at a time when Africa’s legal sector is going through a period of rapid change. Over the last year, there was £16bn worth of M&A deals in sub-Saharan Africa, according to figures supplied by mergermarket, while IHS estimates that the region’s economies will grow at an average of 5-6% over the next eight years. As African economies grow and diversify, local and international lawyers will be presented with both opportunities and challenges as they seek to underpin this expansion with sound legal advice.
