Welcome from Andrew Balfour, Chairman, Africa Practice Group

We are delighted to invite you to the seventh Practical and Legal Exchange African Symposium, to be hosted in Marrakech, Morocco, 21-24 November 2018.

For the past six years, representatives of Africa’s leading independent law firms have gathered at PLEASe to share legal, transactional and commercial expertise and experience. It is an opportunity to discuss the growing needs of African companies and governments, and of international businesses in Africa, as well as discussing aspects of law firm management. The 2017 PLEASe Symposium, held at our offices in London was a resounding success with representatives of 59 leading law firms and 21 African countries in attendance.

This year’s event will return to the continent and for the first time take place in North Africa. A number of multinational corporations with business interests in Africa will be in attendance to share their knowledge and perspective on working in Africa.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you in November.

 Chairman, Africa Practice Group
