Jeantet and Africa, a long-standing relationship.
We are one of the first law firms in Paris to have dedicated one of its departments to African law. We are particularly active in the energy and mining sectors, and we have a strong track record in international arbitration in these areas.
Our teams have an in-depth knowledge of the research and work performed under the aegis of the Organization for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa, such as the Unified African Law, WAEMU, ECOWAS, SADC, and CEMAC.
Our lawyers also have expertise in advising governments and public authorities, particularly in the development and drafting of legislation and regulations, the organization and operation of national and local administrations and the modernization of public services. Our long-standing presence in Africa has also allowed us to build a network of local consultants covering the entire African continent.
A multidisciplinary team in the field
With our African specialists, you will be supported by experienced counsels capable of putting at your service an acuity and an expertise forged during 70 years of experience in 43 African countries. In the Jeantet tradition, we make it a point of honor to work in harmony and complementarity with our local legal advisors selected for their high quality in order to best assist you in your transactions and possible regional, pan-African or international cross-border disputes.
