The Gide practice in Africa relies on a team of some 90 lawyers working on African matters and distributed between two key offices in Europe (Paris and London) and four in North Africa (Algiers, Cairo, Casablanca and Tunis), liaising with the offices in China (Beijing, Shanghai), and Turkey (Istanbul) to develop its strong and growing practice. Our African teams are supported by an extensive and well-established local network of contacts and leading law firms throughout the continent, carefully selected not only for their legal expertise, but also for their relationships with government departments and agencies.
Our multilingual Africa team has wide expertise of both French law and English law governed transactions and their associated documentation. Its experience and expertise extends across the entire continent, not only in French-speaking Western and Central Africa but also in Southern and Eastern Africa and in Portuguese-speaking countries. Gide's lawyers possess extensive and detailed knowledge of both national and regional African legal systems and regimes, enabling them to advise notably on the policies and objectives of regional communities and laws such as those of the ECOWAS, CEMAC, UEMOA, SADC and OHADA.
