Managing the Deal in Africa             


 You are cordially invited to listen to a recording of part of the lively, practical seminar on the topic "Doing the Deal in Africa," held on Thursday, May 28, 2015 at the offices of Baker and McKenzie in Washington, D.C. During the discussion, we looked at the unprecedented growth rates and increase in capital flowing in and out of the African continent, examined some of the deals that are being made, and provided practical guidance on best practices when doing business in Africa.


Topics covered:

  • Who are doing the deals, and in what countries

  • Structuring the deal

  • Restructuring the target business

  • Conducting due diligence

  • Tax issues

  • Local content and other restrictions

  • Anticorruption and other compliance challenges


We recruited leading experts to help us understand the details of doing deals in Africa during this one day event.


To listen to the recording, go here.

The discussion, which is important to the many emerging and frontier market countries exporting to the U.S., is based on an interview and observations of practical situations with Scott Lowden. He is author of the important new book Import Transactions and Customs Compliance. Scott Lowden has a long and distinguished law career, including serving as head of the legal department for two Fortune 100 companies.
