Andrew Balfour, Chairman, Africa Practice Group, Slaughter and May joins panel of Judges of the Nigerian Legal Awards




Andrew is Chairman of our Africa Practice Group and is responsible for shaping the firm’s Africa strategy. He works closely with our partners and acts as an ambassador for the firm, promoting our practice throughout the continent.

Prior to his retirement as a partner in 2011, Andrew was Head of our Financing practice and a member of the Partnership Board. His practice, in over 30 years with the firm, covered a wide range of corporate and financing work, including UK privatisations, mergers and acquisitions and financing transactions. Andrew was a leading financing lawyer, notably representing the interests of borrowers in the development of the Loan Market Association’s investment grade loan documentation.


During his legal career, Andrew worked on several transactions in Africa, including acting for the arrangers of international private equity issues, acting for borrowers and lenders on loan transactions and acting on the acquisition of a major sugar refining business.

Since retiring as a partner, Andrew has maintained an ongoing interest in Africa. He has become a Trustee of Lawyers for Justice in Libya, which promotes human rights in Libya, and has worked with a major international charity on, and has visited, an innovative combined HIV and TB project in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa.
