ALN is an independent alliance of leading law firms in Africa. It is the largest and only grouping of its kind in Africa. ALN member firms enjoy a close and integrated working relationship and, in addition, have an established network of ‘Best Friends’ across the countries in Africa in which ALN does not have a formal member. ALN assists member firms by developing common knowledge-sharing platforms and enhancing their capacity and capability to serve a growing volume of high value domestic and international corporate and commercial advisory work across Africa. ALN also co-ordinates cross-border practice groups focused around industry sectors including Agriculture, Commercial Property & Leisure, Energy, Financial Services, Infrastructure & Telecoms, Mining & Minerals and Oil & Gas. ALN’s member firms share common values and are located in the four major regional economic groupings – EAC, SADC, ECOWAS and COMESA – with a combined population of over 650 million people.
