Clients call on our Africa- focused dispute resolution team when facing intricate commercial disputes, white collar or securities litigation. We advocate our clients’ interests robustly, defending African companies against litigation arising outside the region and providing international clients with powerful representation when litigating in Africa. We have an outstanding record in disputes where the governing law, venue and parties’ places of domicile are in different jurisdictions.

Our Africa group includes lawyers from our offices in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia, each with extensive experience managing business challenges in the region. Qualified in multiple jurisdictions, fluent in several languages and experienced with the continent’s varied legal systems, we are able to bring results-oriented solutions that bridge business cultures.

We have developed strong links with top African lawyers and professionals who share our common values. These relationships allow us to match Dechert’s international expertise with the insight and knowledge of the strongest lawyers in Africa to deliver seamless service to our clients.
