The OHADA (Organization for Harmonization in Africa of Business Laws) system has so far been adopted by 17 West African nations in order to increase their attractiveness to foreign investors and business partners. Based on the Francophone legal system it is now essential to make OHADA accessible to the Anglophone legal and business community. This book introduces OHADA laws to common-law trained, English-speaking jurists who have current or prospective clients with business or litigation in West or Central Africa. For legal academics, the book also offers a tantalizing view of the highest tech.
Legal harmonization is an essential step to encouraging foreign investment in Africa and the development of sustainable pan-African trade. Now in a fully updated 2nd edition, Business Law in Africa explains the new system of law, now being developed and promoted by the Organization for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa. OHADA's essential aim is to promote economic integration and development by creating a secure legal framework for the conduct of business in Africa. In order to achieve this aim, OHADA has enacted a number of laws, known as Uniform Acts, on various aspects of business.

This book is an updated edition of Benoit Le Bars' book Pratique du droit des societes en droit de l'OHADA. The OHADA treaty (Organisation pour l'Harmonisation en Afrique du Droit des Affaires/ Organization for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa) covers 17 African States - mostly former French colonies from West and Central Africa - that largely followed the French legal model. It is a welcome addition for non-French speakers interested in arbitration and corporate law in the OHADA countries. The book will be of particular interest to readers from the English common law background and those who seek to understand the legal system in the OHADA countries in a more detailed and practical way. It will also appeal to investors, attorneys and law students interested in the subject. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
