SNR Denton has added another South Africa firm to its alliance network, tying up with Black Economic Empowerment firm KapdiTwala.

SNR Denton, which first added a South African firm to its network in early 2009, has now added a second, forming a link with KapdiTwala basedCape Town.

Two-partner KapdiTwala specialises in energy law, and provides clients with corporate and litigation services. The firm is part of the South African government’s Black Economic Empowerment initiative – launched to redress inequalities faced by the country’s black majority as a result of apartheid - and part of SNR Denton’s role will be to support KapdiTwala as a firm providing BEE services.

In a statement, KapdiTwala managing partner Noor Kapdi said: “This agreement is historic for a number of reasons. It’s the first time in the South African legal profession that we will see collaboration to this extent between a global law firm and a BEE firm, giving us a solid foothold in the energy legal sector.”

“This association will provide a platform of opportunities for black South African lawyers to specialise and develop careers in the energy industry,” added SNR Denton’s energy co-head Stephen Shergold.
