With offices in the UK, Brussels, Dubai and Singapore, and through our European Alliance, we can provide the highest quality legal advice across borders. If you work on a global scale and need specialist legal support, we can help.

Our European Alliance comprises GSK Stockmann + Kollegen in Germany, Nunziante Magrone in Italy and Roca Junyent in Spain. With more than 850 lawyers based in 23 offices spread over 8 international jurisdictions, we co-ordinate our legal specialists to offer you the best legal advice, across borders. 

We also work with a select number of firms in other jurisdictions who are experts in their local legal systems and cultures. We don't share fees with any of the firms we instruct – our incentive is to continually improve our ability to provide the best quality advice at local rates. We can freely choose the best local law firm to suit your business needs.

With this integrated approach, we've developed close, longstanding relationships with many leading firms throughout the world. Our dedicated groups of lawyers focus on and develop these links, particularly in regions such as Africa, China, India, Israel, the Middle East and North America.

Whether working with our European Alliance or our other international colleagues, clients receive a seamless delivery of services across jurisdictions managed by a single point of contact.

Africa Group

Africa Group

Africa is an important geographical focus for our firm. As one of the fastest growing regions in the world, it is increasingly a core target market for our clients. We see Africa not just as an emerging market, but as a diverse continent which is host to unparalleled and rapidly evolving opportunities, both for local and international participants.

Nabarro is well positioned to support UK and international clients investing in Africa but also to work with African based investors and other businesses to realise their UK and international ambitions. We advise a broad range of clients in respect of African investments across a variety of sectors and are increasingly supporting African-based businesses to raise funds in the London markets and to connect with opportunities internationally.

We have close links with a number of leading law firms in various African jurisdictions as well as a network of private and public sector contacts operating in-country who can provide us with current business and political intelligence relating to jurisdictions our clients are targeting. This includes strong links with financial, technical and insurance advisers who are active in the region.

Africa Engagement

Our lawyers regularly attend and speak at conferences and trade events in Africa, including most recently the African PPP conference in Johannesburg in December 2013 where we delivered pre conference training to 120 delegates from across Africa. We are active members of the British Council for Africa, the Royal African Society and the International Project Finance Association and regularly meet with legal delegations and trade missions from Africa.

Our commitment to Africa extends to direct capacity building initiatives including our participation in the International Lawyers for Africa (ILFA) programme through which we sponsor a candidate on a three-month secondment in our London office each year. In addition, we have delivered PPP workshops to federal and local government officials, lawyers and advisers on international best practice and its application to local projects.
