Who's Who Legal Corporate: Merger & Acquisition

Under Karim’s leadership, A&K established ALN, the first and most integrated alliance of leading independent law firms in Africa. Since its inception in 2004, ALN has expanded into 13 jurisdictions in Africa with an affiliate office in Dubai and an associate firm in South Africa.

He is consistently involved in the most prominent transactions in the region. Karim has recently advised Garda World in their acquisition of KK Security, Helios Investment Partners on the acquisition of 70 per cent of the share capital of Telkom Kenya, the shareholders of Giro Commercial Bank on its sale of the entire issued share capital to I&M Holdings, and Royal Dutch Shell in its takeover bid for British Gas, among others. Previously, Karim advised the Kenyan government on its US$2 billion sovereign Eurobond issuance – the largest sovereign debut debt issue in Sub-Sarahan Africa to date.
