OUR AREAS OF EXPERTISE
Corporate, Mergers & Acquisitions & Tax
Our Practice has substantial expertise in Corporate, Mergers and Acquisition transactions. Retained by both investors and investees, we have increasingly advised a number of entities (both local, regional and foreign) seeking investment opportunities in the East Africa Region. We are on the ground to offer local counsel and have long-standing arrangements with regional experts on transactions having cross-border aspects. Our Firm’s expertise has been tapped in planning, designing and structuring these transactions, to not only achieve the client’s commercial and strategic goals but to also achieve optimal tax outcome within legal parameters. We are regularly consulted by foreign law firms for advisory services on local laws and regulations relating to establishment, ownership and operation of foreign businesses in the East Africa Region and to handle transactional work involving legal due diligence on target entities.
Our clients have relied on our expertise to plan, structure and execute corporate transactions in a tax-efficient manner thus reducing risks associated with these transactions.
