Lex Mundi, the world’s leading network of independent law firms, will present the first-of-its kind Lex Mundi Emerging Africa Conference, which will be held March 3-4, 2016, in Cape Town.

With rapid economic growth, unprecedented political stability, and an increasingly middle-class population, Africa is poised for a promising future. Long-term success depends on a sound legal strategy rooted in a thorough understanding of rapidly changing political, regulatory and competitive dynamics.

The 2016 Lex Mundi Emerging Africa Conference will explore challenges and address the concerns of senior corporate counsel and business decision makers who operate in or are considering expansion into Africa.

Senior corporate counsel, business decision makers and Lex Mundi member firm lawyers will come together for an interactive conference focused on legal strategies for investment and growth amid the rapidly changing political, regulatory and competitive dynamics in Africa

The two-day conference offers global networking and a collaborative learning experience. The conference features exceptional programming and an impressive lineup of speakers that will provide a better understanding of the political, economic, demographic and social drivers of Africa's future growth.

Topics include:

  • legal aspects of corporate strategy and operations in Africa;
  • market opportunities in industry sectors;
  • Africa's legal frameworks (national and regional);
  • implications for investment terms; and
  • best practices for proactively structuring investments.

Keynote speaker Donald Kaberuka, former president of the African Development Bank for 10 years, will discuss the trends and events investors should watch. Other speakers include chief executives and senior general counsel from companies such as Rothschild, Rio Tinto, Standard Bank, GE and Ecobank.
