Real Estate

Our lawyers in Senegal offer a full range of real estate sector services including: financing, fund formation, acquisitions and disposals, tax efficiency, land use, environmental law, planning and development, construction and leasing. We work with our real estate clients from inception to completion with contract and regulatory advice. 

The highest rate of construction in the subregion is taking place along the Petite Côte. Our office in the city of Mbour has responded to the increasing number of hotels and real estate projects in the area by developing a strong real estate, property and construction practice.

Our clients benefit from our significant experience in orchestrating high value, long-term projects that involve complex structuring, facilitating negotiations, ensuring tax efficiency, navigating legal and regulatory issues and, when necessary, litigating on their behalf.

We also offer representation for litigation as well as alternative dispute resolution for construction matters.

Experience has included advising:

  • Representing Hyatt Hotels in a hotel management deal that will introduce the Hyatt brand to Senegal on a building constructed by a Senegalese company
  • Advising on a joint venture between a Senegalese company and a French company to build and sell 80 villas near Mbour (Petite Côte, Senegal)
  • Advising Hilton on a franchise agreement in the Democratic Republic of Congo
