A unique understanding of Africa, and our commitment to it
We have developed strong relationships with major African market players, both private and public, based on a thorough understanding of their needs and on our commitment to the rule of law.
We have developed unique local capabilities and practical know-how, including knowledge of the Lingala language, and can help our clients resolve their complex legal issues and offer them administrative support and operational assistance from legal perspectives.
Our knowledge of the African market and the sensitivities of its stakeholders results also from our strong commitment to the corporate social responsibility programs of our clients and our own efforts to contribute to the development of the region.
The firm is very much committed to Africa’s future and participates regularly in projects financed by international institutions, such as the World Bank, to reinforce the rule of law and improve the business climate.
Local strength, global reach
Our understanding of local legal systems and cultures enables us to cultivate relationships with skilled law firms in jurisdictions across Africa and to select the right local counsel for every assignment.
