As Africa changes, Linklaters changes with it – and remains the continent’s legal advisor of choice

If the greening of energy, ESG and digital infrastructure are now regarded as commercial facts of life in most corners of the world, it is at least arguable that Africa has embraced this new dispensation with even greater relish than anywhere else. 
Linklaters has naturally been a prime mover in advising clients on a huge range of transactions in these fields, as well as some of the more traditional ones. On the alumni website, we talk to Francisco Ferraz de Carvalho, Head of Finance and Energy & Infrastructure in Lisbon and leader of Linklaters’ Lusophone Africa Group, and to Justin Faye, Paris-based partner in the Energy & Infrastructure team and a renowned expert on projects across the length and breadth of Francophone Africa, also Andrew Jones, the firm’s Head of the Africa Group about the firm’s continuing pre-eminence across the commercial markets of Africa.

A range of alumni profiles from former Linklaters people living in or with links to Africa.
