Our network of expertise, however, extends much further than the country’s borders. Bowmans advises clients throughout Africa, while our membership of the global network of commercial and corporate law attorneys, Lex Mundi, gives us access to more than 160 member firms globally.
Bowmans clients, including multinational corporations and international finance houses, are as diverse as our practice.

By balancing these dynamics, and by applying our legal expertise, we provide effective, appropriate and efficient advice to solve the challenges our clients face. And to help create opportunities that move their enterprises forward.
