Leading South African law firm Webber Wentzel has received the Private Equity Africa Deals Legal Advisor of the Year award for 2013.
"We are extremely proud of this achievement. It is a testament to our deep and longstanding private equity sector specialisation and reach across Africa. It also speaks of our sustained involvement in the most significant private equity deals," says Mark Linington, sector group head for private equity at Webber Wentzel. "The next decade will see massive investment by private equity firms into Africa and we are excited to be a part of it."
The Private Equity Africa Awards recognise the achievements of GP investors and advisors. Winners were selected by an independent panel of judges based on recommendations from the London Business School, Coller Institute of Private Equity and the Private Equity Africa Awards Advisory Panel.
Webber Wentzel was the only South African law firm shortlisted. The firm's global alliance partner, Linklaters, received a Special Recognition Award for advising on a Zambia Energy Corporation deal.
