“My company engaged Amne for a public policy task.
She was very professional, and delivered above expectation.

Her keen to detail, knowledge on regulatory environment within Tanzania as well as her vast network are key assets that could be of use to anyone wanting public policy tasks taken upon.

It was a great experience and would recommend her for the same works.

Great job Amne”

Remmy Eseka
“I am a proud Tanzanian, in 2020 I Co-founded Kambirana Group (brand owners of “Jiranileo”) together with my American business partner, Jiranileo is Africa’s first authentic home made-meal sharing business platform. Amne drafted for us our partnership agreement, expertly striking the right balance between two friends, with different cultural and business backgrounds and aspirations, who were now getting into business together. Not only did she encapsulate our different understandings, but guided us on the contractual tenets, startup considerations and struck the perfect compromise between friends exploring business,(this is how acute her emotional intelligence is.) This agreement 3years later still stands strong and continues to form our bedrock. Amne is also a dear friend, an inspiration to me personally. Over several conversations spanning the last three years or so, I have heard her deliberate over her desire to set up an investment advisory firm in addition to her bustling law practice. She is a stony high Pan-Africanist. Aspires to put our continent on the global business map. I have seen her put in the late hours, give up personal time to serve her clientele all over Africa and help them understand/navigate/grow their African footprint. This powerhouse of a professional ROCKS, she loves what she does. This lady is taking her clients beyond the stars and, Jiranileo continues to rely on her legal and business advice. This toddler of an African business is now growing strong legs because of Amne and Shikanalawgroup.”
Sunday Kapesi
Co-Founder/Chief Operations Officer/Regional Manager-East Africa at Kambirana Group
“Amne is well known to me, both personally and professionally. She is apt, determined and well knowledgeable in areas of international trade and investment law. We worked together at the East African Community, and I have seen her grow her law firm into one of the most reliable and professional investment law firms in the East African region. I am proud to be associated with Amne, and honoured to recommend her for her services both regionally and internationally.”
Brenda Ntihinyurwa – CQI-IRCA, ACIArb
Senior Legal Officer at East African Community-Civil Aviation Safety and Security Oversight Agency

“For the past five years, Amne and I have collaborated on various Gaming-related projects in Tanzania and the East African market.

She is a people person, good with clients, and will go above and beyond to support colleagues and see things through.

She is the best in her field and willing to share best practices. She is also very responsible and detail-oriented, which makes her stand out.

It’s a great honour to have known and worked with her.”

Jimmy Keneth Masaoe

Operations Manager at Betway Tanzania

“During the opening phase of the Johari Rotana Hotel in Dar es Salaam, I was introduced to Mrs. Amne Suedi and her company, Shikana Group, by a friend. Prior to that we engaged several law firms between 2017 and 2019 but never quite received the legal advice in a timely and professional manner, which we had expected from an owner perspective and an international hospitality company from Abu Dhabi.

As soon as we engaged Shikana Group we experience a different approach to meet our needs. The services and legal advice were not only provided in a timely, professional, and trustworthy manner, but we could also always rely on Amne and her team to listen and to provide solutions to our legal challenges.

The Johari Rotana, the largest 5-star hotel in Dar es Salaam and in Tanzania, with 253 Rooms, 4 Restaurants and bars as well as the largest banqueting and meeting facilities in a 5-star hotel, opened its doors in November 2019. Due to Covid, we had to close our operation in April 2020. With Shikana Group’s legal advice we managed to handle this challenging process flawless. Over 90% of our teams expressed their wish to rejoin for a re-opening in 2022.

We look forward to continuing our cooperation with Amne and her team for many more years and can only recommend her services to anyone seeking the service of a very professional advisory firm.”
