Business in Africa

Becoming established and doing business in Africa poses an extraordinary challenge. In order to undertake such an endeavour, our legal services will be invaluable to you, regardless of whether they are provided in Quebec, Canada or Africa. When surrounded by partners who know and understand the legal and business culture of the country, you significantly increase your chances of success.

Our team will accompany you in developing your projects in Africa or act as an interface between you and your partners, whether African or Canadian, depending on your needs. With our team, you will benefit from a strong foundation in Africa that will supervise and secure your actions on the continent. Regardless of the type of project you want to put forward, or the type of set-up you envision, such as distribution, partnerships or joint ventures, we are able to guide you in the legal, political and commercial analysis of your projects. We possess the necessary expertise to interpret, negotiate and draft legal documents such as international sales contracts, goods and services distribution contracts, and joint venture and joint development agreements. We can also manage your trade-marks portfolio internationally.

Our firm has been present in Africa for a number of years and in order to maximize our exposure or your establishment, we have set up a network of privileged contacts as well as a strategic partnership with an African law firm.
