Local, Global Law Firms Team Up for Strong Presence

Webber Wentzel, a century and a half year old global law firm, has signed a bilateral agreement with local law firm Tadesse Kiros Law Office. The agreement enables the two firms to work jointly in Ethiopia. The agreement also puts in place best practice sharing and thought leadership, as well as creating opportunities for joint training and secondments. Webber Wentzel is attracted by Ethiopia following the recently relaxed business climate in the country, including the privatisation process, according to Robert Appelbaum, Webber Wentzel Ethiopia country partner. "We're seeing many more international and South African clients interested in investing in Ethiopia,” he said.
