DALDEWOLF and KMCL strengthen their position in law expertise in Africa

The law firms DALDEWOLF (in Brussels) and KMCL (in Kinshasa and Lubumbashi) have decided to join their efforts. The two entities will provide their customers with a unique expertise, combining their skills on the African market and more specifically in the DRC and in the member States of the OHADA.

Both firms intend to develop their offer in four specific areas: financial law (banking and insurance), energy law, telecom law and mining law.

KMCL is an independent law firm founded by Ms. Lydie Kazhu in 2009 and includes a dozen lawyers, divided between Lubumbashi and Kinshasa, active in various branches of business law. According to Lydia Kazhu, founder and principal animator of KMCL "the legal services market is growing fast in the DRC, under the double effect of successive legislative reforms and the good level of foreign investments. Our partnership with DALDEWOLF will strengthen our service offering, given the international experience of its lawyers. The academic and scientific recognition of some of its members is also an important advantage."

DALDEWOLF law firm has a recognized expertise in international business law and a team dedicated to business law in Africa, bringing together recognized experts in OHADA law (corporate, securities, distressed companies, etc.), international arbitration, tax law and investments.

For Patrick De Wolf, managing partner of DALDEWOLF, "the conclusion of this partnership is part of the strategy of our firm to establish our presence in the OHADA region and to develop our services in M&A and particularly in arbitration, and to accompany investors in their local efforts. The dynamism and quality of KMCL lawyers are major assets for the success of our partnership."
