Eswatini

Andersen Global is now collaborating with Eswatini-based Robinson Bertram – a stalwart legal services firm in the country. The firm was founded in the late 1800s, and currently has a team of 30 professionals led by Managing Partner Zwelethu Desmond Jele.

Gambia

In Gambia, Andersen Global is partnering with Fajara Chambers – a 25-year-old law firm that specialises in litigation, general business law serving telecom, real estate, banking and other sectors. The firm is led by Managing Partners Ann Rivington and Malick F. M’bai.

Liberia

The firm’s new Liberia partner is BICON – a 30-strong team founded in 2015 by Managing Partner Zinnah B. Sackie. The firm offers accounting services to a number of clients across the merchandising, manufacturing, mining and agriculture sectors. 

The list of new partners is representative of Andersen Global’s continued commitment to building a presence in Africa. “Our Africa platform is already one of the largest providers for legal services on the continent and building a benchmark organization in the region is a key element in our strategy,” said Andersen Global Chairman and Andersen CEO Mark Vorsatz.

The firm has been expanding rapidly in the region in recent years. In early 2018, the firm added a partner in Uganda to its network, followed by a partner in Kenya. Mozambique and Angola followed on the list later that year, while a Ghana member firm was added to the list last year.
