MawereSibanda has been a member of the Nextlaw Referral Network since 2018. It is the largest legal referral network in the world, with more than 600 member firms and 28,000 lawyers across 200+ countries. It has been recognized as a Leading Global Legal Referral Network by Chambers & Partners in the Chambers 2019 guide.
“We are proud to be the champion of the small to medium-size law firms,” said Nextlaw Network CEO Jeff Modisett. “Until now, medium-sized law firms were excluded from most networks because of high annual fees and the exclusive, territorial and monopolistic nature of the traditional network business model. Our Network welcomes all top law firms in the world, focusing on quality, not size.”
Nextlaw Referral Network was created by Dentons, the largest law firm in the world. The network employs a detailed screening system to guarantee the quality of its member firms and has developed proprietary technology to allow members to identify lawyers at other member firms with the appropriate experience where clients need legal counsel.
VB Sibanda said, “Membership in the Nextlaw Referral Network provides us with unprecedented global reach, including leading capabilities in 205 countries. We have access to top lawyers in any practice, industry or sector, anywhere in the world, enabling us to provide our clients with the best local and global services possible. The Nextlaw Referral Network makes us truly ‘in and of the community.’”
The Network also serves as a strategic platform by distributing cutting-edge legal technology at discounts to members, working with another sister company, Nextlaw Labs. Nextlaw Labs curates the best technology in the profession. The Network also promotes thought-leadership in emerging, disruptive technologies, such as AI and Blockchain.
Founded in 2001, MawereSibanda is a full service law firm specializing in corporate law, with offices in Harare’s central business district. We appreciate the implications of globalization on our clients and have positioned ourselves as a global player by developing close relationships with law firms in various parts of the world in order to provide a coordinated cost effective legal service across different jurisdictions. The founders of the firm also founded Makuyana Legal Practice in Botswana, the beginning of our expansion into the region and the continent.
