Anthony Giustini, Regional Managing Partner, Africa, commented: "We have for years advised on innovative and market-first transactions across Africa, and it is always a pleasure to see our lawyers' depth of expertise rewarded. Our dedication to our clients active in Africa is at the heart of our strategy, and that focus on clients is even more important in today's world. In these challenging times, our teams across the whole Clifford Chance network and across a whole range of sectors and services are all busy developing bespoke forward-looking solutions for our clients' successes in the "new normal" Africa of today and tomorrow."

Clifford Chance was also shortlisted in a number of other award categories for work across a range of high profile matters in the region.

Many congratulations to all involved.
