The growing strength of Africa’s economy is creating tremendous opportunities in the services sector. Both legal and financial services providers see significant opportunities in supporting Africa’s dynamic markets and emerging middle class. For example, Africa is the leading continent in mobile financial services with over 100 million users of these services and rising. With respect to legal services, the wide gap between Africa’s demand for trained lawyers and the number of such African professionals is expected to remain for the foreseeable future, creating an attractive opportunity for foreign law firms who are looking to scale and prosper.
