When it comes to investing or doing business in Africa, Emery Mukendi Wafwana & Associates is the international law firm upon which many investors and businesses rely for the implementation of their projects.
For the past 20 years, we offer to our clients legal professional services that meet international standards with proven expertise in the natural resources; infrastructures; investments, trade and industry; banking and insurance; family; as well as litigation and arbitration sectors.
With our multicultural teams and multidisciplinary background, and with our dynamic structures and substantial legal data base, we efficiently advise and assist our clients (SMEs, public and private companies, investors, international financial institutions, companies, international law firms and governmental agencies) in various projects in Africa.
Our strategic presence in the world, and particularly in Africa, warrants proximity, efficiency, and proactivity in the management of our clients’ interests. This strategic presence is the result of a development plan implemented as part of our constant and continuous effort to always meet the growing needs of our clients which require legal support of investment projects from major business centers to the places where the projects are implemented in Africa. Our permanent offices in New York (USA), Johannesburg (RSA), Kinshasa, Lubumbashi and Matadi (DRC), and Brazzaville (Republic of Congo), respond to these needs.
We further meet our clients’ needs through a network of our partner law firms which, under our professional responsibility, team up with us in order to efficiently assist our clients in the member countries of the Organization for the Harmonization in Africa of Business Law “OHADA”, the West African Economic and Monetary Union “WAEMU/UEMOA”, the Economic and Monetary Community of Central Africa “CEMAC” and the Southern African Development Community “SADC”.
