This month we bring you a special focus on a continent that boasts the world’s largest free trade area, a diverse economic make-up and increasing political stability. The latest edition of Law Update focuses on Africa, a territory that continues to be an attractive business and investment destination.
Like the rest of the world, Africa is still re-building from the impact of COVID-19, however, there continues to be an optimistic view of the opportunities the continent presents. An example of the appetite for investment into Africa was captured in a report we commissioned, titled Legal Leaders in MENA. Our survey of legal leaders revealed a resounding desire to expand into new territories, with 81% naming Africa as their investment destination of choice.Read the full edition
Africa plays a large part in our firm’s long term strategy. Due to our long-term presence in the MENA region, we have been able to support our clients with their operations across multiple African jurisdictions. By being able to leverage the expertise of our multi-jurisdictionally qualified lawyers who are able to deliver our full service capabilities, we are able to ensure all of clients’ legal requirements are being met wherever they choose to operate and expand their businesses.
We made the first step in building our business and serving our clients in Africa with the opening of an office in Egypt in 2015 and have continued to develop our networks and contacts in Africa since then. We know the importance of working together with local law firms in the various African jurisdictions and how Al Tamimi & Company can add true value to clients investing in the continent, utilising the strong know-how and expertise of our team, alongside our network of ‘best friend’ firms.
Our long-standing presence in North Africa has allowed us to demonstrate our value for many clients in the country. Nour & Partners (in association with Al Tamimi & Company) offers a comprehensive range of legal services for those with business dealings in Egypt and wider region, with two offices in Egypt; Cairo and Port Said.
Beyond Egypt, we opened an office in Casablanca, Morocco, to further strengthen our on-the-ground capabilities in Africa. Due to Morocco’s position as a gateway for investment into Africa, it acts as a strategic base for law firms and international businesses looking to operate in the continent.
In addition to our physical presence in Egypt, for those jurisdictions where we currently do not have offices we are still able to support our clients throughout Africa due to our strong ties with leading local law firms within the region. We work in collaboration with some of the largest full service firms within Africa, tapping in to their unrivalled knowledge of their local legal systems and combine it with our world-class expertise to seamlessly support our clients and meet their legal requirements.
