Success in this diverse and complex region requires real experience and knowledge, and effective partnerships. We understand this and have successfully applied this approach to many Africa-related mandates, including major deals and complex disputes.
From governments, to corporations and entrepreneurs, we act for a wide range of clients based in Africa, and international clients doing business on the continent. Africa is home to the fastest growing regions in the world, and some of the most exciting opportunities.
We have great experience of Africa and its many and diverse countries and cultures. We frequently spend time in many parts of the region, developing relationships with important service providers and identifying reliable and sophisticated partners.
We have extensive experience handling disputes and conflicts arising out of African matters, including complex, sensitive and political issues. We are familiar with dealing with the challenging issues which may arise relating to corruption and bribery, political risk and practical difficulties.
In addition to many personal relationships in African jurisdictions, we also benefit from our membership of the Lawyers Associated Worldwide and Meritas networks, which include many African law firms. We benefit not only from our legal networks but also from our relationships with some of the best law firms in Africa.
We have particular experience in the oil and gas, power and energy, hotels and hospitality, and media and technology sectors. We also specialise in International Construction projects and disputes and have particular expertise in the FIDIC forms of contract.
