Africa Regional Practice

Africa is one of the world's fasting growing emerging markets. It presents great opportunity and great risk. Working together as part of your team, Hogan Lovells will help you successfully navigate the continent’s unique business environments.

We offer the full spectrum of legal services in Africa and regularly advise on large infrastructure and energy projects, multi-party PPP and project financing, complex Islamic financing, FINTEC, and private equity transactions specifically for African investors. Clients appreciate our global team’s innovative and award-winning approach.

We are committed to building business in Africa and have more than 30 years of experience on the continent. We advise inbound, outbound, and pan-African clients on their strategic goals. We understand the complexities of Islamic finance, DCM, and FINTEC. And have led private equity offerings specifically for African investors.

Our unified global team has the know-how and cultural understanding necessary to support English, French, and Portuguese-speaking Africa from our global offices in Latin America, the U.S., Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.

We work closely with law firms in 50 African countries. And we are committed to making a positive impact on local communities by investing in social enterprise and in-country capacity building. 

Yes, we are brilliant at the law, but also passionate about the continent. Choose Hogan Lovells as your legal partner for Africa.
