Alliott Group, the international alliance of independent professional services firms, has increased its presence in Sub-Saharan Africa by appointing Zimbabwean legal practitioners Muvingi & Mugadza as their exclusive law member in the country.

The appointment of Muvingi & Mugadza meets the group’s need for an established, high calibre business law firm in Zimbabwe and provides a stronger legal presence in the region from which the alliance plans to expand further.

Established in 1982, Muvingi & Mugadza is based primarily in the capital, Harare, with a second office in nearby Mutare and is headed up by Managing Partner Mr Nyasha Brighton Munyuru. The firm has a diverse practice which is staffed by 4 additional partners and 23 associates, consultants and support staff who offer expertise in corporate law and advisory, alternative dispute resolution, property and real estate law, intellectual property, insurance and pensions law, privacy and data and criminal and family law.

Muvingi & Mugadza is highly regarded particularly for its work serving a wide range of clients including those in the real estate, corporate, insurance, public, energy and mining industries. The firm’s lawyers are also members of INTA and the IBA.

Nyasha comments:

“At Muvingi & Mugadza we are proud to be associated with an international alliance of Alliott Group’s stature and reach. Membership is part of our international growth strategy to create more value for our domestic clients who are looking for international opportunities and likewise for foreign clients looking to invest in Zimbabwe. We look forward to developing relationships and partnerships with our new colleagues both in the region and across the world.”

Alliott Group COO Giles Brake adds:

“As a young and innovative firm, Muvingi & Mugadza is exactly the type of law practice we strive to add to Alliott Group’s fast-expanding membership. Under the strong leadership of Nyasha and Misheck, the firm has developed an international vision which we are delighted to be part of. Despite a challenging yet very resilient domestic market which is undergoing significant economic reforms, Zimbabwe is very much open for business and the experienced lawyers at Muvingi & Mugadza are well equipped to assist domestic and foreign clients in every aspect of their business. We send a warm welcome to everyone at Muvingi & Mugadza.”

Alliott Group is growing organically in Africa at a steady rate and now has a presence in South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Tunisia, Senegal, Egypt, Morocco, Zimbabwe and Zambia. The alliance is targeting further expansion into West Africa, but also in Sub-Saharan Africa, East Africa and North Africa.
