We have advised individuals on founding new businesses and on the creation of companies and business organizations in a wide variety of sectors of the economy. Our experience has also included due diligence investigations, advice on mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, both incorporated and unincorporated. We also advise on arrangements to reduce, re-organize and re-construct the capital of companies and also advice on the procedure to divest companies within a holding or group.
Also, we have done substantial work on strategic partnerships between companies, assisted in the dealing of shares (buying and selling), negotiated and drafted shareholder agreements, non-disclosure agreements, management agreements, and employee share subscriptions alongside employment contracts for c-suite employees.
Again, we have advised project developers and investors on the legal aspects of foreign investment (direct and indirect) across a range of industries in the Cameroon economy. These include matters relating to company rights and obligations, regulatory compliance, taxation, labour, immigration, commercial engagements, divestiture and insolvency. Further, we assist clients with asset tracing and debt recovery because we understand this exercise sometimes poses an operational issue for organisations with limited time to spend on chasing unsettled obligations. We handle matters relating to the enforcement and foreclosure of securities, and provide for timely requests, payment negotiations, arbitration and recourse to the courts if necessary. We value our cordial relationship developed with law enforcement agencies to permit a responsive environment for better enforcement of court orders and arbitration awards both nationally and internationally.
We also leverage our resources to provide company secretarial services to our clients ensuring peace of mind that they meet all legal and administrative requirements in conformity with local regulation. We also represent our clients in litigation when contentious issues arise in the course of their business activities. In a nutshell, our legal interventions include representation in any competent court within Cameroon and the Sub-region.
We are currently advising the sponsor of a mixed development real estate project on selling a significant share of its stake to two institutional investors. Also, we currently advise a strategic investor on selling equity stakes in an independent power project to foreign and domestic investors.
