Anjarwalla & Khanna (A&K) has entered into a strategic relationship with ATZ Law Chambers (ATZ), a law firm in Tanzania. Shamiza Ratansi and Amish Shah (both formerly of Adept Chambers) set up the new firm in March, shortly after Dr. Fred Ringo of Adept Chambers was appointed Head of the Fair Competition Commission in Tanzania. Shamiza and Amish are joined by substantially all of the other Adept staff members.
As a result of Dr. Ringo’s move, Adept Chambers tendered its resignation from ALN and ALN members have just welcomed ATZ as its new Tanzanian member. The increasing number of Tanzania-Kenya cross border deals makes a tightly knit strategic alliance between A&K and ATZ valuable to each firm. The new connection will allow for seamless interaction on deals, sharing of know-how and the exchange of lawyers between the firms. This is the first step of ALN’s initiative to achieve closer co-operation among firms. Tanzania has a rapidly evolving market with exciting developments across multiple sectors. A&K is excited about its new relationship with ATZ and knows that this new alliance will allow A&K to maintain its cutting edge in the legal services sector, and also, allow its clients to take advantage of the new economic opportunities Tanzania has to offer.
