Africa Investments

Our Africa investments practice involves a wide array of clients and sectors. The sheer size and diversity of the African continent present varied investment opportunities. Optimizing these opportunities and mitigating the associated risks, requires astute advice that draws on an integrated understanding of finance, government regulation and public policy, and legal expertise both from international and domestic law dimensions. In particular, sophisticated legal advice on successful foreign investment in the African continent is enhanced by sensitivity to the government relations aspects of major investing, recognizing that to varying degrees the government is often a factor even in seemingly private deals. Our clients include private equity, venture capital and sovereign wealth funds; project developers and sponsors; and African governments seeking to improve their investment regime to attract foreign investment.
