About us in a nutshell
Established in 1982 by founding partner, Peter Frank Koep.
Koep offers general and specialised services in corporate and commercial work, oil and gas, energy and natural resources, litigation and dispute resolution, liquidation and insolvency, property, banking and finance, construction, competition law, and mergers and acquisitions.
Koep is one of the largest full-service law firms in Namibia. We are also the exclusive member firm in Namibia for Lex Mundi, the world’s leading network of independent law firms with in-depth experience in over 100 countries worldwide. As part of the Lex Mundi global network, we can provide our clients with preferred access to more than 21,000 lawyers around the world, all from a single point of contact. Individually, each Lex Mundi member firm is a leader in its local market. Collectively, Lex Mundi firms provide global legal resources with unmatched depth and breadth. In collaboration with other Lex Mundi firms, we can seamlessly handle our clients’ most challenging cross-border transactions and disputes.
Koep is also the exclusive Namibian member of Lex Africa, the first and largest legal network in Africa. Lex Africa member firms are independent firms that often work together on cross-border and other matters to provide a comprehensive legal service to clients. Lex Africa effectively covers the African continent and provides a valuable resource for businesspeople and investors in Africa.
The team at Koep currently consists of four partners, nine associates, five candidate attorneys and one consultant.
Two of the partners are conveyancers in full-time conveyancing practice, while the other partners focus on complex litigation, oil and gas, energy and natural resources, infrastructure, project financing and general commercial work. Our associates, two of whom are based in Swakopmund, focus predominantly on general litigation, employment law, insolvency, corporate and commercial work.
All our attorneys are members of the Law Society of Namibia and are admitted to appear in the High Court of Namibia, while several of our team members may also appear in the Supreme Court of Namibia. Three of our attorneys are court-accredited mediators.

Our Green Initiative

At Koep the professional development of the staff members who work at all levels of the Firm is important to us. Every year we provide a study grant to a member of our support staff to further his or her education, by enrolling him or her in a degree or diploma that is at least equivalent to a tertiary level qualification at one of the universities, business schools or other tertiary institutions within Namibia, in a course that relates to our business as a law firm.
Our partners, and recently our associates, attend the Lex Africa and Lex Mundi professional development conferences offered every year, held at venues across the globe, where they gain world class experience in areas that are current to the practice of law.
