Four East African firms create alliance

Four East African law firms have formed an alliance dedicated to providing regional and international businesses with coordinated legal services across East Africa. . Two firms from the DLA Piper Group, Kenya's Iseme Kamau & Maema Advocates, and Tanzania's Ishengoma Karume Masha & Magai, have joined Uganda's Sebalu & Lule Advocates and Rwanda's Equity Juris Chambers to form the alliance under the name Juris East Africa. The members of the alliance will work together on multijurisdictional transactions, and share best practice, training and knowledge. IKM Managing Partner James Kamau said "The formation of Juris East Africa is a proactive response to the increasing demands from clients in East Africa and investors in this region who have been clear that they are seeking East Africa-wide solutions and that there is a wide gap in the region, which we are happy to help fill."
