Donald Dinnie, managing director of Norton Rose Fulbright South Africa, commented: “The addition of Keller Snyman Schelhause to our Cape Town practice enhances our market leading capabilities, building on our work in many ground-breaking projects - particularly in the areas of energy and infrastructure.

“South Africa is an important jurisdiction for Norton Rose Fulbright and we have partnered with Keller Snyman Schelhase in the past on significant transactions.  This addition will enable us to progress our long-term strategy across South Africa and the African continent, and will further support our ambition of becoming one of the world’s leading providers of legal services.” 

Anton Schelhase, director of Keller Snyman Schelhase, comments: “Our strong market position in the Cape, together with Norton Rose Fulbright’s established global position means that we can provide clients with unrivalled legal services in the region. We are delighted to join Norton Rose Fulbright, which will extend the breadth and depth of the services we offer to our clients and their businesses in the Cape and beyond.”
