BOWMANS WINS INTERNATIONAL PRIVATE EQUITY AWARDS
The AGF Africa Service Providers Awards recently placed Bowmans at the top in two categories: Best Tax Advisory Firm and Legal Services: Private Equity.
The awards were created by Africa Global Funds, “a monthly magazine for asset management professionals and institutional investors… interested in the African continent”. They aim to generate both industry and public recognition of the outstanding efforts and accomplishments of fund service providers covering Africa. They are also the only international awards dedicated to celebrating excellence in African private equity fund services.
“We are very pleased with these awards and proud to be acknowledged as a leader in the field by an independent international adjudicator,” says John Bellew, partner and head of Bowmans’ Private Equity Practice.
The awards follow hot on the heels of Bowmans being named ‘African Law Firm of the Year’ at the African Legal Awards held in Johannesburg in September and are the second and third awards that our Private Equity Practice has won this year and follow being named Single Deal Advisor of the Year at the Private Equity Awards ceremony in June.
“It is very gratifying to see our Private Equity Practice gaining the recognition we believe we deserve,” concludes Bellew.
