Our principals understand the close specific relationship between government and business and how government regulations can favour or hamper your business venture in Africa. When advising on a venture in a specific country, we will examine the country-specific regulatory environments in order to be able to best guide you through the process.
Today, Africa contains 53 independent and sovereign countries, most of which still have the borders drawn during the colonial era. Through our proven expertise and strong relationships, we have been part of the change process by helping to erase these colonial barriers through trade, finance, economic integration and prosperity.
