At Charles Russell Speechlys we understand investment in to Africa. We’re here to help you navigate the opportunities and challenges of some of the world’s fastest growing and most dynamic economies.
Increasing urbanisation in Africa, a growing middle class and more disposable income creates new hotspots and market opportunities. Investors need to be more precise and thoughtful about what they want to invest in, whether it is a specific sector, country or region.
We recognise that the political and regulatory environment can often be a barrier to growing companies. We have experience of advising in numerous African jurisdictions and can assist you with your transactions and investment activity.
Our clients include local and international corporates, institutions, investors and individuals. We advise on their business interests across Africa, including Corporate and M&A, Real Estate and Construction, Litigation and Dispute Resolution, and Private Client services.
The team includes lawyers in our London, European and Middle Eastern offices, many of whom have lived and worked in Africa. We provide a multi-disciplinary approach backed by a deep understanding of the key growth sectors on the continent.
We’ve built strong relationships with some of Africa’s leading law firms and professional advisers to provide ‘on the ground’ advice if you need local support. We regularly partner with them on events and insights to ensure our clients are up-to-date on the issues that affect them.
