Africa boasts vast resources, large markets and the potential for commercial success.

When it comes to mining and metals, infrastructure projects, oil and gas, financial services, telecommunications, food and clothing commodities or transportation, Africa boasts vast resources, large markets and the potential for commercial success. Sectors we reach.

Such opportunities need to be managed in a way that complies with all relevant national and international laws.

We can call on a global network of expertise and local knowledge and we successfully represent clients in all manner of business-related legal situations.

Whether it be conducting an internal investigation to determine how wrongdoing has been committed, co-ordinating a case that involves numerous investigating agencies and crosses borders or challenging any allegations made by such agencies, Rahman Ravelli is on hand immediately to assist companies, their senior figures and investors obtain a just outcome. Allegations involving bribery and corruption, sanctions, tax evasion and money laundering require expert handling – we provide the careful legal hands that are needed.
