Meet Africa Leading General Counsel, Lawyers & Law Firms Network
Derrick Kaufmann, Director at Tabacks will be speaking at the event discussing Criminal Liability for Companies and Individuals: The Impact FCPA & Anti Bribery Act on Ethics and Compliance.
Africa may continue to attract jaded metaphors from the West but the reality is a lot more inspiring. With 54 countries and nearly 1.1 billion of the world’s population, the vast continent offers a wealth of opportunities to both local and global investors. Interestingly, these are no longer restricted to natural resources like in the past, and all eyes are now on the fast-emerging telecom, technology and agribusiness sectors.
It follows that Africa is also home to a burgeoning legal market, with European, American and now, even Asian law firms looking to set shop in regions such as Morocco, Algeria, Nigeria, Central and South Africa. Africa is one of the most diverse markets on the one hand but on the other, it presents a maze of political rivalry and economic instability that needs to be successfully negotiated to realize its full potential.
In sync with the mandate of Legal Era Magazine to expand footprint in and serve as development platform in promising markets, we are proud to present the inaugural Legal Era Conclave & Awards 2019, Africa on 19th July 2019 at the Wanderers Club, Johannesburg, South Africa.
