Distinctions - Jun 08, 2022

With Pascal Agboyibor recognized as #1 and a total of 12 lawyers ranked, Asafo & Co. is honoured to take a top spot in this year’s ranking of the 100 most influential lawyers published by Jeune Afrique and Africa Business Plus.

Asafo & Co. has once again been recognized for the excellence of its lawyers across a broad range of practice areas in the Jeune Afrique ranking of the 100 most influential lawyers in French-speaking Africa. A total of twelve lawyers are distinguished this year, including Pascal Agboyibor, who has consistently ranked in the top 2 over the years and is ranked #1 this year, the second time since the ranking started in 2017. We are also proud to see for the first time that each partner from our offices in French-speaking Africa appears in the ranking.

Unlike any other firm, our lawyers recognized in the Jeune Afrique ranking this year are representative of the diversity that we value and seek to enrich across the firm. We are also proud to see that year after year, a growing number of the firm’s sectors and practice areas are represented in the Jeune Afrique ranking — project development, project finance, M&A, PE, banking and finance, public law, capital markets, litigation, international arbitration and strategic advice to sovereigns, with a particular focus on the energy, mining, oil & gas, infrastructure, healthcare, technology and fintech sectors.

Please join us in congratulating our lawyers in the 2022 ranking. We could not have achieved this recognition without the talent of both lawyers and staff, who believe in our vision of building an international law firm entirely dedicated to the transformative work and projects that are shaping Africa’s future.
