Our lawyers in Senegal offer a full range of insurance services, including: transactional, regulatory, commercial dispute resolution, claims, competition, restructuring and emergency response.
We view the companies that we work with not only as clients who may need assistance on a specific project, but also as business partners over the short and long term. We focus on providing advice in the context of the insurance sector, as well as looking at clients’ existing circumstances and aspirations within the industry.
Our attorneys appear for clients both in court litigation and alternative forms of dispute resolution, such as arbitration and mediation. We have experience with all courts in Senegal and represent clients before the World Bank’s International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes. Partner Mouhamed Kebe is a chartered arbitrator before the arbitration court of the Organization for the Harmonization of Corporate Law in Africa (OHADA) states.
Experience has included advising:
- Dangote Pty Ltd on appeal before the Senegalese supreme court
- Appointed by the Senegalese government in an investor-state arbitration claim registered with the World Bank’s International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) brought by French multinational Vicat
- Plan International in its successful defense of a labor claim before the Court of Appeal of Kankan, Guinea
