We are part of a global network
Africa is one of the fastest growing regions in the world. With their resource-rich economies set to expand further, African countries are becoming increasingly attractive to German companies as key markets. Consequently, many German firms that operate abroad are currently assessing whether to invest in Africa.
Gleiss Lutz advises clients on the corporate law aspects of their African investments in particular. Compliance is another area in which we provide legal assistance to companies in Africa. In recent years, Gleiss Lutz has conducted various compliance training sessions, particularly for German companies, in numerous African countries.
Gleiss Lutz has established close ties with leading independent law firms throughout the African continent, with excellent contacts and extensive local experience across, in particular, the North African nations and South Africa. This gives us the flexibility to assemble hand-picked teams tailored to our clients’ specific needs whenever required. The extensive expertise and the advantage of close links that Gleiss Lutz offers across Africa are discussed in greater detail below.
