Projects and Africa

Project Finance / Infrastructure

We have in-depth expertise in the legal and financial structuring and follow-up of major infrastructure projects, mainly in the energy, transportation, and telecommunications sectors. The team advises public and private sector clients on the financing of their projects and assists them in relation to the negotiation and drafting of financing arrangements (equity, debt, mezzanine finance or leasing), project contracts (PPP, BOT, concession, etc.), guarantees and sureties.

Corporate, M&A & Private Equity in Africa

Our team has been working on all aspects of corporate, M&A and private equity transactions in Africa since the 1990s. We notably assist clients in relation to legal and tax due diligence, the drafting and negotiation of letters of intent, investment agreements, shareholders’ agreements, representations and warranties, management packages, as well as on all corporate governance issues. We also assist on any securities issues or transactions. Our team advises multinational companies, fund managers and financial institutions on their fund-raising transactions and investment funds on venture capital and development capital transactions across Africa.

Mining, Oil & Gas

We advise numerous public and private sector companies in the oil and gas and mining sectors. Typically this is in relation to the structuring, securing and performance of the acquisition, selling and management of oil (upstream and downstream) and gas assets or mining assets (drafting and negotiating production sharing contracts and mining agreements, securing mining titles, institutional reforms and conducting legal due diligence). We also advise on fund-raising transactions and in the issuing of securities on financial markets or in stock market transactions in the mining, oil and gas sector.
