After the launch of the Morocco office late in 2015, DLA Piper expanded its presence in Johannesburg, South Africa. Both these offices complement and support the DLA Piper Africa firms across the continent. Having a strong presence in both the north and south of the continent is a key element of the firm’s strategy for Africa, where Morocco and South Africa have become two of the continent’s main business hubs.

The Johannesburg office undertakes work across South Africa, operates as a hub for work in other parts of Sub-Saharan Africa and forms a support base for the continued growth and development of the highly regarded DLA Piper Africa group across the continent. The office focusses on business generated domestically, regionally and internationally, leveraging off DLA Piper’s global presence and client base.

The Johannesburg office is staffed with South African lawyers, who will (as needed) team with lawyers from our offices around the world to handle international/cross-border assignments.
