Understanding Africa’s regulatory environment and strategically navigating the public policies that shape decisions are key to driving the sustainable growth of economies across the continent. 

Our Regulatory and Public Affairs team guides clients through policy changes, helps them mitigate regulatory risks and effectively carry out projects, trade and investments in Africa.

With extensive on the ground presence throughout the Continent, our team has significant first-hand experience working with governments, public entities and pan-African administrative bodies. We understand how such entities operate and their decision-making processes. This understanding gives us the unique ability to advise on public policy issues impacting business in Africa, including fostering stronger sovereign-led initiatives.

Our Regulatory and Public Affairs practice brings together a cross-disciplinary team of lawyers who work with public and private stakeholders both within and outside the Continent across a wide range of areas and regulated sectors, including banking and finance, energy, environment, infrastructure, healthcare, financial services, agribusiness, construction and real estate, technology, telecommunications and transportation.

Our work also includes assisting African and international development agencies and finance institutions in their investments and navigating interactions with African public sector entities and legislators. We set up the effective communications channels needed to reach smart solutions together.
