Our new journey as we close the chapter on our formal alliance with dla piper

7 Aug 2015 2 min read Article

After a very successful partnership with DLA Piper over many years, Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr's partners have decided against a fuller integration with DLA Piper. Both CDH and DLA Piper have therefore concluded that their respective interests and strategies, internationally and on the African continent, are best delivered separately and so our formal alliance comes to an end on 31 August 2015.

Our respective firms will continue to work together to support existing mutual client relationships and to refer clients to each other where appropriate. We assure you that the change in our formal relationship with DLA Piper will not in any way affect our ability to continue providing the quality of service you have come to expect from us, and the delivery thereof timeously and within your cost expectations. Our relationships with our partner firms on our African continent remain in place and we are confident in our ability to continue providing our full range of services across all of our practice areas and specialist sectors.   We will also continue to share critical resources in other international jurisdictions, building on the close working relationships and networks established over many years.

As we move forward to new beginnings, the current local and global economic challenges and developments in the professional services environment demands that we endeavour to set new and better standards, innovate our service offerings and uphold our commitment to service excellence in partnering with you and all of our clients.

Your CDH relationship partner, Attie, Gasant, or myself, will be available to address any queries you may have in relation to these developments.

Do look out for our new branding in the forthcoming weeks that will signal the start of our new journey!

Kind regards
