Africa

Our voice and vitality span 54 territories through 22 offices. The Adams & Adams Africa Network is an innovative and unique system that allows us to share the institutional memory of the firm in striving for service excellence, while profiting from the local knowledge and skills in each territory.

Adams & Adams is firmly rooted in Africa – with a tenacious belief in the economic growth potential and spirit of the continent

Our head office in Pretoria, the capital of South Africa, provides the perfect gateway through which our 66 partners, supported by close to 600 professionals and staff, render a broad range of legal services to clients in Africa and the rest of the world.

Through our Associate Offices and long established networks, we serve our global client base throughout the African continent – in matters of intellectual property, commercial law, property and litigation.

Adams & Adams regularly hosts a meeting of partners from Associate Offices and Registrars from across the continent – a network conference designed to maintain relationships, build capacity and share information about updates on intellectual property and corporate & commercial developments across the continent.
