Welcome from Nigel Boardman, Chairman, Africa Practice Group

We are delighted to invite you to the Slaughter and May’s Practical and Legal Exchange African Symposium, to be hosted at our offices in London, 18-20 September 2019.

For the past seven years, representatives of Africa’s leading independent law firms have gathered at PLEASe to share legal, transactional and commercial expertise and experience. It is also 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 2018 PLEASe Symposium, held in Marrakech, Morocco, was a resounding success with representatives of 43 leading law firms and 19 African countries in attendance.

This year’s event will return to our offices in London. A number of multinational corporations with business interests in Africa will also be in attendance to share their knowledge and perspective on working in Africa.

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

 Chairman, Africa Practice Group
