The current practice on the African continent is very diverse. In certain regions and jurisdictions the outcome is very much encouraging with significant cooperation between arbitration and the State. In other regions, however, misunderstanding and distrust is the norm, preventing the harmonious co-existence between arbitration and litigation.
Our webinar, conducted in English and French, explored and debated these complex, fast-moving issues, from the viewpoint of various jurisdictions of both Francophone and Anglophone Africa. Reed Smith partner Clément Fouchard was joined by:
- Abayomi Okubote, International Arbitration Practice team lead, Olaniwun Ajayi LP
- Leyou Tameru, Legal consultant and founder of I-Arb Africa
- Mamadou Konaté, Business lawyer, registered Arbitrator
- Susan Kimani, MIAC Co-Registrar and PCA Legal Counsel
