DLA Piper are delighted to be hosting Africa Week once again. With representatives from at least 18 of the DLA Piper Africa countries and colleagues from the key investment hubs in Europe, Asia and the US, the week offers a unique opportunity to hear from lawyers with on-the-ground understanding and expertise, to get behind the issues and to help assess the risks and the rewards of doing business across the varied markets in Africa. Sessions will also include guest speakers from client businesses with experience of working and investing on the continent. Africa Week also provides a great chance for networking to discuss and fully explore opportunities on this exciting and rapidly developing continent.


  • Panel 1 The Shifting African Political Landscapes: The effect on investment
    The panel will look at investment strategies across the varying political landscapes and review the influence that the different approaches are having on investor interest
  • Panel 2 Realising the full impact of your investment into Africa requires careful consideration
    The second panel will discuss the allocation of capital into funds, organisations and enterprises with the expectation of a financial return as well as positive environmental and social impact
