Charles Russell Speechlys has been advising clients operating in Sub-Saharan Africa for many years, both those located in the region as well as international clients who are investing or operating there.

Over this time we have developed significant experience of working in the region which has helped to shape our understanding of the local cultural, economic and political issues and of what it takes to get a deal done. This includes developing long-standing local relationships with legal and other professional advisers on the ground.

We have a multi-disciplinary team of lawyers with expertise across a number of industry sectors. Our Energy and Natural Resources group is particularly active in Africa and is a regular participant at the Mining Indaba conference in South Africa.

Our Private Equity practice in particular has developed considerable expertise through advising investors into the continent, enabling international investment into a range of significant projects. The team works with private equity institutions, management teams and acquisition finance providers on all aspects of domestic and international transactions.
