Dr. Bebohi Ebongo is co-founder and partner of HBE Avocats. She is admitted to the Paris and Cameroon bars.
In this episode, our speakers explore the practice of arbitration in the region covered by the Organization for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa (Organisation pour l’Harmonisation en Afrique du Droit des Affaires) (OHADA).
