Alliott Global Alliance expands to Botswana through OTTO ITUMELENG Law Chambers
23 January 2023
Alliott Global Alliance (AGA), one of the world’s largest global multidisciplinary alliances, has expanded its presence further into Southern Africa by appointing Top 25 local firm OTTO ITUMELENG Law Chambers (OTTO ITUMELENG) as its legal member firm in Botswana.
Established in 2010 and based in the country’s capital city Gaborone, this latest appointment strengthens AGA in a challenging but strategically important region of the world. Affiliation with AGA gives the firm immediate global reach and the ability to offer support to their growing national and international client base through access to the alliance’s 215 member firms in 95 countries.
Offering legal services including corporate and commercial, labour and employment, debt collection, conveyancing and property and international transactions, the team, led by Managing Partner Odirile Otto Itumeleng, mainly has clients who work across the banking and insurance, construction, engineering, energy and gas, investment and property, mining and mineral and telecommunications sectors. They also work for one of the largest trade unions in Botswana.
OTTO ITUMELENG’s clients include those who are members of the Chamber of Mines, Construction Consortium, the International Labour Organisation and Cross Border Oil Transport Providers.
“By joining AGA as its exclusive law firm member in Botswana, we are now able to market our increased international reach in 95 countries to existing and potential clients that have a requirement for multi-jurisdictional assistance. In turn we are committed to attending in-person events and to providing members around the world with an understanding of the opportunities available in Botswana.
“We plan to expand our mining, transport, and international trade service offering and are therefore looking forward to engaging and collaborating with fellow members in the region who work across these sectors, for mutual benefit.”
Alliott Global Alliance CEO, Giles Brake, adds:
“The addition of OTTO ITUMELENG Law Chambers means that we now have another high calibre law firm to represent the alliance in one of Africa’s emerging hotspots. They join an ambitious international alliance whose like-minded member firms collaborate closely to protect their clients’ assets and to expand their businesses across the region and globally.
“With plans to open offices in Maun and Ghanzi and to expand their service offering, OTTO ITUMELENG is definitely a firm to watch. We extend a very warm welcome to Odirile and all the team.”
AGA is now one of the largest professional services alliances in Africa with coverage in 19 countries: Algeria, Botswana, Cameroon, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Libya, Malawi, Mauritius, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Further growth is planned in 2023.
