Corporations exist to serve a multitude of interests and purposes, from shareholders to employees, and are today held to a high standard of community responsibility as well. Navigating that landscape while raising capital and exploring new business opportunities is no easy task. Our teams’ experience runs the gamut of advising on issues impacting corporations. We can advise on the laws of jurisdictions covering a substantial portion of Africa.

We have significant experience of structuring and negotiating all types of key corporate transactions in every major industry, including energy, mining, financial services, technology and real estate. We act for buyers and sellers in relation to share and asset acquisitions and disposals, joint ventures, strategic alliances, licensing agreements and group reorganizations.
