Public tenders and arbitration: the African experience

Public tenders in Africa throw up their own set of unique challenges, especially where disputes are concerned.

What disputes arise in relation with public tenders in Africa? Is arbitration a natural match? What are the dos and don’ts in managing such disputes? Why is “knowing one’s contractual party” particularly relevant in public contracts in Africa? How to manage arbitrations against state entities? Is joinder of additional parties or consolidation of arbitrations always an option – and is it a good option anyway?

Join us for a breakfast conference in the morning of the first day of the Paris Arbitration Week 2019 Monday 1 April 2019 at 8:30am at the Paris office of Hogan Lovells for a lively discussion on these topics moderated by Thomas Kendra with Sabrina Ainouz, partner in DWF’s International Arbitration Group, Joachim Bile-Aka, partner in the Bilé-Aka, Brizoua-Bi & Associés law firm (Ivory Coast),  and Ndanga Kamau, independent arbitrator and practitioner.
