Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has announced that banking & finance lawyer Mbali Mavundla has re-joined its Johannesburg office as a senior associate. She returns to Norton Rose Fulbright after completing an MBA in global banking and finance from the University of Birmingham in the UK.

Mbali focuses on advising finance institutions, including large commercial banks and developmental finance institutions. Her experience includes project finance, acquisition finance, development finance, and asset finance.
Mbali began her career at the firm in 2010 and was promoted to associate in 2012. In 2014, she joined one of South Africa’s leading development finance institutions as a senior legal advisor.
Jackie Midlane, Norton Rose Fulbright’s South Africa Head of Banking and Finance, said:

“I am thrilled to welcome Mbali back to the team. Jackie’s return will be extremely well received by our clients with whom she has built a solid reputation. Her addition aligns with our strategy to remain the pre-eminent banking and finance legal team in the country and across the continent.”

The multi-award winning team specialises in local, pan-African and global legal and business advice on the most complex and innovative financial transactions.

Of her return, Mbali said:

“I am excited to be back at the firm and contributing to the exceptionally talented and dynamic banking and finance team.”

Mbali holds an LLB (2009) from the University of Pretoria, South Africa and a Masters of Business Administration in Global Banking & Finance from the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom.
