IFLR has recognised and rewarded legal innovation and ingenuity in cross-border deal-marking for over 20 years, and in 2020, IFLR hosted (virtually) the first-ever Africa Awards. Building on this, and in-line with our coverage in other regions, the IFLR Africa Awards returns in 2021 to celebrate the most innovation and pioneering law firms, legal teams and individual lawyers across the continent.

The shortlists and winners will be decided after an exhaustive research process and deliberation by an internal panel of judges made up of the IFLR editorial team. Winners will be announced on Thursday, September 9, 2021.
