Dentons merges with South African firm
Dentons is set to launch its own presence in South Africa after merging with local firm KapdiTwala.
The Cape Town-based firm KapdiTwala has been associated with Dentons since 2012, and the merger is part of a regional strategy that includes a launch in Johannesburg later this year.
KapdiTwala currently has five lawyers, including three partners, and is led by managing partner Noor Kapdi, who will continue in his role.
Global CEO Elliott Portnoy said Africa was a “priority region” for Dentons and the firm was aiming to connect African clients with lawyers and businesses around the world.
