John Kalala Kabamba, Managing Partner, J&R Cabinet d’advocats

GBR meets with Lubumbashi law firm J&R Cabinet d’avocats.

Can you please provide us with an overview of the firm’s history here in Lubumbashi?

The company’s name is J&R, which stands for our two founding partners, John and Raymond. We are both bar-certified lawyers of Lubumbashi, and we started practicing in 1990 after studying in the University of Lubumbashi as trainees in law firms. I personally began in the law firm of the master Mbuyou, who is today the advisor to the head of state. Raymond was a trainee in the law firm of Ntoto that was at that time president of the bar. In 1995, after our training, we decided to create our own law firm, beginning with a team of four people working in all sectors.
