Our construction, infrastructure and PPP sector newsletter covers subjects of commercial and practical relevance for our clients doing business in Africa. We use our expertise to explore the complex, ever-evolving specialised construction and infrastructure sectors and highlight some of the most important and recent legal developments to help clients manage and avoid risk.

Taking this opportunity, we would like to announce that Dentons South Africa has expanded its presence in the construction, infrastructure and PPP sector with the appointment of two new associates who concluded their articles with "big five" South African firms. Lerato Thini has had exposure to and gained varied experience in all aspects of the contentious construction practice at Dentons and her focus will be on contentious construction related matters. Lerato Ramotsamai spent time as an associate specialising in public sector commercial transactions and regulation, with a focus on public procurement law, broad-based black economic empowerment (in relation to procurement), administration law, constitutional law, the law relating to access of information and other aspects of regulatory law. Lerato's focus will be on non-contentious infrastructure and PPP projects.
