All the winning deals, teams, law firms and individuals for the inaugural Africa Awards

IFLR is delighted to announce the winning deals, teams, firms and individuals for its inaugural IFLR Africa Awards 2020.

This announcement follows months of research by the team and careful deliberation by the editors and IFLR journalists that make up the internal judging panel.

The IFLR awards recognise legal innovation in cross-border transactions. To be considered, all deals must have closed between May 31 2019 and May 31 2020. The deals must meet the specific criteria to be considered cross-border and jurisdictionally African.

Given the enormously difficult environment due to Covid-19 we are unable to host a physical awards event this year to celebrate the awards. We do however believe that it is important to recognise the achievements, the legal ingenuity and potential for innovation across the market.

The winners’ award presentation, where we reveal the winners and talk about some of the highlights from the research, can be viewed below.

Congratulations to all the winners.
