Webber Wentzel CTI Insights Series


In June 2022, Webber Wentzel opened a new Competition, Trade and Investment (CTI) Practice Group. In our Webber Wentzel Insights series, Africa Legal took a close look at the practice’s offering, the need for the service on a regional and pan-African basis, and areas of growing concern for market actors.

The areas we covered included:

Webber Wentzel as a one-stop-shop for CTI

At the launch of Webber Wentzel’s multi-disciplinary Competition, Trade and Investment (CTI) Practice Group, attended by South Africa’s Minister of Trade, Industry and Competition, speakers focused on emerging trends and competition as well as trade and investment in the wake of regional and continental integration.

Time to harness collective muscle

Yael Shafrir of the Webber Wentzel CTI team moderated a high-level panel discussion focusing on the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), localisation, foreign direct investment (FDI), intra Africa investment and digital trade.

Shaking up the market

Webber Wentzel’s new CTI practice has made waves with its unique offering, and the decision to launch it was well timed in response to a surge in demand for these crucial services. We look at how merging the firm’s expertise into one more formally integrated client offering will enable them to better assist clients with all the legal nuances of investing in and into Africa.

Nzimande’s return boosts CTI Practice

Meluleki Nzimande re-joined Webber Wentzel as a partner in the Competition, Trade and Investment (CTI) Practice after four years away. His added experience promises great things for the firm’s new division.

Africa’s spider’s web of trade

In a podcast hosted by Africa Legal’s Tom Pearson, Webber Wentzel’s Daryl Dingley and Judge David Unterhalter shared their insights on the current trading and global influences in Africa.

Exciting times for creating economic value

Leading M&A and trade experts Ziyanda Ntshona and Meluleki Nzimande were interviewed to find out more about why they believe there’s a chronic need for FDI in Africa and how they see the foreign investment landscape changing.

Finding clarity amidst protectionist trends

Foreign investors often have their hands full keeping up with changing regulations in various regimes. Antitrust and foreign investment law expert Sima Ostrovsky discussed foreign investment trends in a fast-changing world.

The ever-changing CTI landscape

Yael Shafrir, a trade and investment lawyer at Webber Wentzel specialising in Africa FDI and the AfCFTA, in collaboration with Africa Legal, hosted a vidcast focusing on foreign direct investment trends, public interest considerations for merger filings, key policy developments and investment promotion across the African continent.
