Africa's Diaspora offers the continent a major source of business and investment. Educated, ambitious and comfortable in multiple cultures, Diaspora members are superbly qualified to develop businesses not just in their home countries, but across Africa. Unfortunately, like most new project developers, Diaspora members often encounter difficulties when navigating the many complexities of a major international operation.

Since 2008, the Law Offices has helped Diaspora members to develop their investment projects. Diaspora startups have benefited from the Gateway Program, which offers early-stage legal advice at heavily discounted rates. The Law Offices has also pioneered the Initial Funding Questionnaire (IFQ), which has helped Diaspora entrepreneurs develop their business plans and mitigate risks.

In addition to its project work, the Law Offices has assisted Diaspora members with legal matters including contract disputes and employment disputes with international organizations.

The Law Offices works in both English and French. To discuss your project or your legal case in confidence, please contact Peter C. Hansen at or at (202) 349-3780.
