The business environment for regulated industries is increasingly being affected by international and national regulations that demand specialized knowledge. Africa Legal Consulting can bring that knowledge to help public and private clients operating in regulated sectors such as:
• Life sciences
• Postal services
As regulated industries require in-depth experience from both a business and legal perspective, Africa Legal Consulting works alongside other professionals with specialized experience in tax, consulting, accounting, and financial advisory to deliver practical advice from multiple viewpoints.
Our services span a range of legal competencies including development grants and permits, corporate transactions, real estate and planning, government relations, environment and litigation, with a specific focus on:
• Regulatory requirements
• Reorganizations and restructurings
• Transacting with public sector entities
Regulatory requirements and regulatory change often coupled with more demanding business needs are seen as major challenges to growth.
Africa Legal Consulting advises business worldwide in industries such as banking, insurance, construction, healthcare, telecommunications, postal services and transport and assists them in licensing, permitting and compliance matters. We also monitor and report on national and international legislative and policy developments and devise compliance programs tailored to individual client needs.
Reorganizations and restructuring in regulated industries
As a result of the current economic situation, reorganization and restructuring are high on the agenda of many businesses. These activities are particularly complicated when operating in a regulated environment and require specific industry or sector knowledge and expertise.
Africa Legal Consulting has extensive experience in the restructuring of businesses in regulated industries, particularly in the financial sector. Africa Legal Consulting assists private companies both with restructuring and reorganization in insolvency proceedings.
Africa Legal Consulting has practical and in-depth experience in corporate acquisitions in different industries. In addition to corporate restructurings we also advise business with other aspects of optimizing corporate legal processes.
Transacting with public sector entities
Over the past several years, public spending has been one of the main drivers of economic growth and development, and has been rising steadily in many countries worldwide. In jurisdictions where this remains the case the public sector is seen as a priority for many private businesses. Dealing with public entities requires a solid understanding of their operational landscape, of how public sector entities function, and of the impact of regulations on the collaboration with, between and within such organizations.
Africa Legal Consulting advises both public and private entities in setting up various forms of public-private collaborations including cooperation agreements, public procurement, concessions and outsourcing of public services as well as setting up public-private partnerships.
