On site or off site. On call and on demand.

Clients in the legal world want the best of both worlds. Today that’s possible because there are firms like Imani that think outside the box. We didn’t rewrite the laws of the legal industry, we just found another way to live by them.


The future of law is here.

Imani, derived from the Swahili word for belief, is an agile and flexible legal services offering designed for short term and long term legal projects for corporations and public institutions in Africa. Imani ensures highly qualified and talented former big law firm lawyers are available for clients seeking legal support across the African continent and across all industries on a demand basis.


The Imani Way

The legal practice today is a client service industry. In order to compete, you have to adapt. Download our report and see how we are confronting the changing landscape of the legal world.


It’s all about flexibility.

In a growing and changing Africa, the demand for legal services ebbs and flows in tandem with the changing rhythm of different businesses. Sometimes this means there is a need for a devoted team of lawyers and permanent retainers. Similarly, in-house lawyers or law firms expend extensive hours in times of peak demand, or have very little to do in quieter periods – but regardless, their costs need to be covered.

Imani offers companies and law firms greater flexibility in satisfying their need for legal services than ever before. We have created a platform where these two needs meet.
