GENI & KEBE

Established in 1912, GENI & KEBE has deep roots in Senegal and is also notable for its cross-border experience. The Senegal member of DLA Piper’s Africa group, the multi-lingual team often has a role on multi-jurisdictional projects. The firm's arbitration practice also goes from strength to strength; managing partner Mouhamed Kebe’s appointment as a member of the ICC's International Court of Arbitration in 2017 is an indicator of its renown in this space. It remained busy in key areas including mining, energy and PPPs. In ongoing work, Kebe is advising Kosmos Energy on the establishment of its operations in Senegal following the discovery of offshore gas near the Senegalese and Mauritanian border in 2016. Banking and finance is another active practice at the firm, where highly experienced senior associate Mame Ngoné Sow is a name to note. Financial regulatory and Islamic finance are among the group's areas of expertise. 2017 and 2018 saw a number of personnel changes at the firm: US-qualified senior associate Meghan Waters joined from Colombian firm Philippi Prietocarrizosa Ferrero DU & Uría and counsel Dembo Diaoula joined from EY Senegal. Aboubacar Fall and Codou Sow-Seck left to establish FALL Partners. Counsel Boubacar Diakité heads the corporate and M&A team.

Legal Developments by:
DLA Piper LLP (US)

  • Sentencing guidelines for corporate manslaughter

    In February 2010 the Sentencing Guidelines Council (the SGC) issued definitive guidelines to courts on imposing appropriate sentences for corporate manslaughter and health and safety offences causing death. The SGC states that fines imposed on companies found guilty of corporate manslaughter should not fall below £500,000, while fines in respect of health and safety offences that are a significant cause of death should be at least £100,000. Crucially, the SGC declined to provide for a fixed link between the imposed fine and the turnover or profitability of the offending company.
