Distinctions - Apr 17, 2023

For the fourth consecutive year since the firm was founded in 2019, Asafo & Co. receives extensive recognition across it practice areas and offices in the 2023 Legal 500 EMEA legal directory and rankings.

In the 2023 edition of the Legal 500 EMEA legal directory published, a total of 13 of the firm’s practice areas were recommended in the rankings and a total of 20 lawyers were mentioned by name for their standout contribution to their respective areas. We are particularly pleased to see new areas recognized this year, and in particular venture capital, a practice which has grown significantly in recent years in line with Africa’s dynamic startup ecosystem. We are also one of two firms to be singled out for the first time for our expertise in International Public Law, a new category introduced this year in the France – Dispute Resolution: International Arbitration section.

We would like to thank our clients for their longstanding trust and their contributions to the rankings. Without their support our firm would not have grown in just 4 years time to become a 150-strong legal team spanning 8 offices and 3 continents.
