Startups looking to invest in Africa often have serious financial constraints. Coming up with a great business idea is one thing. Implementing that idea across an ocean is far more challenging. Developers often forego getting critical legal advice to save money at the start, thus harming their chances for funding and success down the road.

Since 2008, the Law Offices has helped startups develop their African projects, including through risk-management training, help with business planning and negotiations, and preparing basic documents such as memoranda of understanding (MOUs) and joint-venture agreements (JVAs).

The Gateway Program helps startups get basic legal help at heavily discounted rates. Gateway clients reserve attorney time each month, and receive the same level of attention and assistance as the Law Offices' regular clients.

Gateway slots are limited. To learn more about the Gateway Program for your project, please contact Peter C. Hansen at or at (202) 349-3780.
