Aman Assefa, Managing Partner, Aman Assefa & Associates Law Office

On behalf of Aman Assefa & Associates Law Office, I would like to extend our sincere condolences to Robert’s family, friends and colleagues.

I first met Robert Legh in 2018 here in Addis Ababa during our initial talks to form an alliance between our firms; and have since met him on different occasions. It didn’t take us long to realize what a wonderful person Robert was and it added more confidence for us in the firm that we already had a very good feel of. All of us here are deeply sad at his untimely passing – and I want to reiterate on behalf of all my partners that it is the special feeling that each of us had of Robert that made us particularly sad of his passing. We were all desperately wishing for his recovery; but, alas, there is nothing to be done now. He is gone – but his memory will certainly and fondly live with us. He was a wise person, a visionary and a caring person too. We have been fortunate enough to know and be associated with him and the firm he was leading.

It is truly an unfortunate loss and Robert will sorely be missed.
