With its rich natural resources, growing financial markets and rapidly expanding economies, Africa is fast becoming the new frontier for global investors and multinationals. South Africa is particularly attractive given the sophistication of its financial markets, low business tax rates and strong transportation infrastructure.
For more than 30 years, Baker & McKenzie has been helping clients seize opportunities in South Africa and across the continent. Our Johannesburg-based team, an integrated part of our international Africa Practice, has worked on significant projects in more than 40 countries. We advise governments, domestic and multinational companies, project sponsors, banks and other financial institutions on a wide range of legal issues, including project finance, M&A, capital markets, dispute resolution, private equity, regulation and anti-trust and competition.
With deep knowledge of Africa’s local markets and a big-picture view of the economic and cultural diversity of the world’s second largest continent, we deliver practical, innovative solutions that meet the legal and business need of our clients.
