African Desk

In the context of the global economy, Africa is one of the most dynamic and attractive markets. There is room for growth in all industries and sectors, with particular emphasis on energy and oil, mining, infrastructure, financial system, transportation and telecommunications.

SÉRVULO has a longstanding relationship with the African continent, and the business areas with the greatest potential and greatest impact on economic growth are also those in which SÉRVULO invests the most and has a clear competitive advantage in terms of experience and know-how.

In addition to having lawyers who have worked in African countries, several partners of SÉRVULO are regularly invited to teach at prestigious universities in Portuguese-speaking African countries (Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, Cape Verde or São Tomé and Príncipe).

SÉRVULO has also been advising, over the last few years, banks, regulators and other public entities from various African countries on various topics, having prepared some of the most relevant draft legislation (and respective regulations) in Angola and Cape Verde in the areas of Public Law/Public Procurement, Banking and Capital Markets.

Due to the fact that SÉRVULO is aware that foreign law firms can only provide quality legal services in Africa if they are associated with local lawyers or law firms, it has entered into a set of strategic partnerships with prestigious law firms in several Lusophone African countries that now belong to SÉRVULO LATITUDE⦵.

In addition to its partners in the scope of SÉRVULO LATITUDE⦵, SÉRVULO has the support of all African firms that are members of the international law firm networks to which it belongs (LEGALINK and CATHAY ASSOCIATES), which enables us to provide global and integrated legal advice to any entities wishing to invest in Portuguese-speaking African countries or to entities from those countries wishing to invest in Europe.
