Africa is gaining increasing significance as one of the world's key emerging markets. With accelerated economic growth across a number of countries and sectors, high returns on investment, and progress in the areas of political reform, macroeconomic stability, and social development, it is becoming an attractive region for international investment.
Projections indicate that Africa's growth is set to continue strongly over the coming years. Coupled with a regulatory boom as Governments across the continent look to promote foreign investment by adapting their legal systems to better suit the changing realities of the African investment environment, investing in Africa has never been so appealing. However, whilst the benefits and opportunities of investing in Africa are profound, the legal and business landscapes can be challenging.
Hogan Lovells' team includes lawyers from across the continent (including Nigeria, Gambia, Libya, Kenya, Egypt and Sierra Leone), with many dual-qualified. Our lawyers bring an understanding of the culture, allowing us to provide our clients with local insight and knowledge. Our experience and expertise means that we have a comprehensive overview of the legal systems in Africa, and are therefore perfectly placed to help our clients anticipate and respond to the complex business and legal issues faced when operating, or looking to invest in Africa.
To get in touch with a member of our Africa team you can either contact a Hogan Lovells lawyer in your relevant jurisdiction, or you can email us now at firstname.lastname@example.org.
