Our client, a Gulf-based telecommunications provider, was investing in a massive tower-sharing enterprise across nine OHADA (Organisation for the Harmonization of Corporate Law in Africa) countries. The team at John W Ffooks & Co simplified this process with a holistic legal analysis and thorough multi-jurisdictional incorporation.
First, we reviewed the relevant telecommunications regulations for each of the six countries.
Then, we examined the procedures for licensing as well as the appropriate administrative framework for the investment within each country.
We completed our task for the client by providing detailed due diligence on the target investment and its operations, followed by the incorporation of local subsidiaries and transfer of assets, jurisdiction by jurisdiction.
