It is a privilege for Fajara Chambers to collaborate with Andersen Global,” Malick said. “This collaboration reflects our commitment to providing high-caliber legal services to private as well as corporate and commercial clients, and our willingness to serve their interests not only in the West African sub-region but throughout the international business community. We are looking forward to working with like-minded individuals and continuing to build a practice that is a formidable competitor in the Gambian market.”

Andersen Global Chairman and Andersen CEO Mark Vorsatz added, “Our Africa platform is already one of the largest providers for legal services on the continent and building a benchmark organization in the region is a key element in our strategy. The addition of Fajara Chambers enhances our global offering significantly. Malick and his team bring substantial experience and expertise, and their commitment to independence and stewardship will further enhance our capabilities in The Gambia and beyond.”
