Come January, law firm Bowmans will have seven offices operating across Africa once its latest office officially opens in Tanzania’s capital city, Dar es Salaam. Led by a trio of Founding Partners, the Tanzanian arm of the firm will target its services to corporate, financial and public investors investing and operating in the East African country.
“Dar es Salaam is increasingly attractive to foreign investors,” said Wilbert Kapinga who will act as the local Managing Partner for Bowmans. “Tanzania has a fast-growing economy with a GDP forecast to grow at around 7% in 2016 and 2017.”
In opening the new location, Kapinga is being joined by Audax Kameja, another highly-regarded lawyer and fellow former Partner from local law firm Mkono & Co. Advocates, and Chris Green, a Bowmans Partner from the firm’s Johannesburg office who is re-locating to Tanzania. It’s expected that his relocation will help ensure the seamless integration of the new office into the Bowmans fold.
With offices already in Kenya and Uganda, the new office will be Bowmans third in East Africa.
