L’objet de cette note est d’analyser ces impacts sur l’exécution des conventions, et en quoi ils peuvent conduire à la force majeure au regard du droit sénégalais.
Our attorneys appear for clients both in court litigation and alternative forms of dispute resolution, such as arbitration and mediation.
We have experience before all courts in Senegal and represent clients before the World Bank’s International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes. Mouhamed Kebe is a chartered arbitrator before the Arbitration Court of the OHADA States.
We have the local knowledge to apply the regulatory, economic, political and cultural context to legal issues and develop case strategies, including technically challenging or complex multi-jurisdictional matters.
Experience has included advising:
- Dangote Pty Ltd in a successful appeal before the Senegalese Supreme Court regarding a tax liability.
- The Republic of Senegal 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.
- KEC in a case before the Sanctions Commission of the African Development Bank.
The reforms to the common arbitration laws are part of an effort to promote and consolidate alternative methods of settling disputes in the region.
GENI & KEBE co-hosted a two-day Master Class with the Institut Superieur de Management (ISM) School of Law, titled “Investment Arbitration in Africa: Challenges and Perspectives”.
