Legal Advisory

Relationship Building

Legally credible and culturally-sensitive relationships are essential to your success. Renaissance’s Legal Advisory branch advises, facilitates, and mediates. We have networks and connections throughout Africa and the United States. In this way, we enable companies, organisations, and law firms to identify appropriate partners. We act as a bridge and a broker between the two continents – conducting due diligence, explaining cultural nuances, and building relationships to facilitate business.

If you’re based in the US and want to do business in Africa, you need someone who is on the ground, who understands the context, and is operating in that time zone. Renaissance can assist.

However, if you’re based in Africa and want to do business in the US, you need someone who can make introductions and is credible. Renaissance can assist.

Investors in Africa who have significant exposure to US equity and bond markets are vulnerable to, and victims of, substantial non-market related losses due to corporate fraud and misconduct. These losses total in the millions in US dollar terms. Renaissance, through its relationship with Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, can assist investors to recover these losses.
