Cohen Amir-Aslani Bolsters Africa Presence with the Launch of its Africa Desk

This initiative highlights the firm’s desire to deploy their international presence to provide the best possible support to their clients, in their operations across the continent, providing an integrated service for clients doing business in the region and helping them understand the legal, political, socio-economic and commercial environments of the different African countries.

For forty years, Cohen Amir-Aslani has been advising and representing African and non-African investors, multinationals, banks, corporate businesses, private equity, export credit and multilateral agencies, high-net-worth individuals, governments and international financial institutions by offering a full range of services, including mergers and acquisitions, public policy and regulation, project finance, capital investment, anti-corruption compliance, construction, arbitration and dispute resolution.

Africa has become a key hub for local and international banks, development institutions, institutional investors and funds looking at new investment and finance opportunities. The launch of the Africa Desk is a continuation of Cohen Amir-Aslani’s lasting collaboration with African states. It offers a fantastic opportunity to take their international expertise to the next level.

The Africa Desk will be led by partner Ardavan Amir-Aslani, founding partner of the firm and counsel to several states around the world, and Virna Rizzo, member of the New York and Paris Bars, specialised in cross-border M&A and LBO transactions.
