Foreign direct investment (FDI) in Africa offers high rewards but also entails serious risks. While governments across the continent increasingly welcome FDI, projects still require meticulous planning and execution.

Since 2008, the Law Offices has assisted investors and public bodies to develop projects in Africa, including in agriculture, education, energy, export marketing, healthcare, market reporting, telecommunications, transport, and waste management. The Law Offices helps investors develop business and funding plans, manage their risks, and develop instruments such as memoranda of understanding (MOUs) and joint-venture agreements (JVAs).

The Law Offices offers clients access to an extensive network of trustworthy local counsel and other advisers across Africa, including for due diligence, deal management, corporate social responsibility (CSR), and tax. The Law Offices also offers startups access to the Gateway Program.

The Law Offices is a Washington policy powerhouse on African matters, regularly producing ground-breaking publications and briefing public bodies in the U.S. and abroad.
