Economic growth in Africa remains strong with growth of 5% in 2013. At least a third of countries in the region are growing at 6% and more, and African countries are now routinely among the fastest-growing countries in the world. Yet for businesses seeking to expand into or operate on the Continent and their legal advisers, there remain serious challenges to success. So how can we all make the most of this continent of opportunity and challenges?
Focussing particularly on recent developments, legal harmonization, opportunities and day to day issues in the legal world in Africa, the session will provide an insight into the potential challenges that lawyers may find when working with clients or on transactions or litigations in Africa and suggest some ways to mitigate the risks. Covering a range of topics such political risk, corruption, the importance of trust and relationship-building and the different pace of working, the webinar will provide a unique insight into working in Africa and present our unique offering on the continent.
