YOUR ONE STOP DOOR FOR FOREIGN INVESTMENT IN FRANCOPHONE AFRICA
GENI & KEBE was founded in 1912 and began acting as a legal adviser firm for foreign embassies and companies. From then to now on, it has been and remains the premier destination law services firm of national and foreign companies, institutions and individuals in Senegal and the Francophone African Region.
Our growth and increasing global presence, which have strengthened over the last twenty five years, are due to our long-standing expertise in many fields of law backed by highly qualified professionals who have graduated from well know universities such as Dakar (Senegal), Essex (United Kingdom), Lausanne (Switzerland), Sorbonne (France), and have performed work experiences in many foreign jurisdictions particularly in United Kingdom, Switzerland and France. They are described, according to sources interviewed by Chambers Global 2011, as ”rigorous and hard working with an impressive dedication to their clients.”
Our local and cross jurisdictional expertise across a wide spectrum of practice areas including but not limited to Aerospace and Shipping, Banking & finance, Corporate/M&A, Dispute Resolution & ADR, Employment & HR, FDI, Natural Resources, Tax, TMT, combined to an extensive network of alliances with correspondent law firms based in most of the capital cities of the Francophone African States confer to our services an unrivalled added value. This explains why Chambers Global praises our ”high quality advice and ability to handle pan-African corporate transactions’’ and acknowledge us as ’’ one of Senegal’s premier firms thanks to its international approach and high standard of work.”
This has placed us at the forefront of our field and fittingly qualifies us to attract and handle most of the high profile projects and businesses carried on within Senegal and the African Francophone region. For all of these reasons, our services are highly sought after by clients coming from all the regions including the top law firms in London, New York, Paris, Dubai, Mumbai on their transactions throughout the Francophone Africa Region.
