Business relies on environmental certainty which can only be provided for by government action. Our Administration and International Institutions practice has lead us to advice on local legislative affairs as well as matters of regional stability and governance which has enabled us to better advise our clients in their activities in the region, whether they are profit or non-profit making entities.
We understand that commercial entities and individuals prefer to avoid litigation as far as possible. Disputes and litigation are stressful to the parties, and take away human and financial resources which could be applied elsewhere. Some acts cannot only result in financial damage to our clients but also in reputation damage.
Although progress has been made generally over the last two decades to address these, requirements for construction and infrastructure development continues to grow in West Africa. As
more opportunities arise for more infrastructure development, our clients have found the increasing need for comprehensive legal advice and risk control in the projects that they undertake. Secure land rights however remain a challenge for many operators in the construction and infrastructure industry.
