Africa

Overview


The countries of Africa offer tremendous potential for domestic and foreign businesses and investors. In the past ten years, the continent has experienced unprecedented growth rates, with more than two-thirds of the top ten fastest-growing economies in the world being those of key African countries. However, each African country brings its own mix of geopolitical forces, resources, and cultural, business and legal systems. Companies seeking to enter, grow within or expand beyond the region need legal advisors with a broad perspective and in-depth, cross-border experience.
