This recognition is a testament to SNC’s unwavering commitment to excellence. “It validates our vision of providing legal and business advisory services to international and local clients in Namibia and enhances our credibility which enables us to attract clients seeking high-quality expertise,” commented Shakwa Nyambe, managing partner at SNC Incorporated.
This accolade underscores the firm’s mission to exceed client expectations by offering practical solutions to complex legal and regulatory challenges. The recognition by IFLR1000 further elevates SNC’s services, especially in its forte – the financial and corporate sectors. “This recognition positively impacts our services by strengthening the credibility and reputation built up over time,” Nyambe said. “It also highlights SNC Incorporated’s prominence in the financial and corporate practice areas within the energy, mining, oil & gas, and natural resources sectors.”
The law firm’s expertise in these sectors has positioned it as a key player in the legal and advisory services landscape in Namibia and the Sub-Saharan Africa region. “Clients can expect a continued focus on legal and business solutions that are specifically tailored to financial structures and strategic corporate governance advice, backed by the assurance of being associated with an internationally reputable and distinguished law firm,” Nyambe added.
He also highlighted some of the innovative strategies that set SNC apart, including that the firm’s approach to mergers and acquisitions includes a focus on VAT implications and comprehensive legal and regulatory analyses. They also engage proactively with authorities and conduct extensive research, as was seen in their work on factoring in Namibia. Additionally, SNC’s use of cloud-based practice management software with robust encryption protocols exemplifies its commitment to client data security and efficiency.
Looking ahead, SNC Incorporated aims to expand its influence. “This is the second year that SNC Incorporated has been ranked in the financial and corporate practice areas. We are planning to expand the team to enable the firm to render more services and obtain even higher-ranking accolades,” Nyambe shared. The firm aspires to maintain its leading position in the region by adapting to evolving business landscapes and setting new benchmarks in legal service delivery.
Beyond providing legal services, SNC plays a vital role in Namibia's economic development. “The firm’s multifaceted work in financial, corporate law and regulatory compliance contributes to Namibia's economic development by facilitating the ease of doing business in Namibia for international companies, facilitating investment into the local economy, setting up external branches and private companies, as well as advocating for coordination between government ministries to limit red tape (within the confines of the law) for business operations to run smoothly. This eases the flow of inward capital into Namibia for broader economic development. SNC Incorporated sees its role not just as a legal firm, but as an important enabler of foreign investment,” explained Nyambe.
The IFLR1000 ranking serves as a guiding standard for SNC. “This recognition reinforces our commitment to maintaining high standards in our future projects and client engagements. SNC Incorporated aims to be a driving force in all realms of the development of the emerging Namibian energy industry, and we will continue to align our work with the broader objectives of economic development in the financial, corporate, and energy sectors for our clients,” Nyambe concluded.
