Infrastructure: Transporting Africa’s Population and Goods

Africa is in motion and demand for passenger and freight movement is expected to double by 2050 in Africa. The Firm’s lawyers have represented public sector clients and private companies involved in the negotiation of the design, construction and operation of key transport corridors within the East African region.

Our lawyers have also been involved in advising on the design, financing and implementation of mass rapid transit projects including BRT systems and the drafting of key project agreements such as leases for BRT rolling stock and bus operating contracts.

The Firm has also advised a vehicle manufacturing company seeking to expand into East Africa on the legal, regulatory and licensing framework within the EAC with a special focus on Kenya and Rwanda.

Recent assignments include undertaking a legal and regulatory assessment of all transport sector policies, laws and regulations in Kenya and Uganda.

On implementation of road transport projects as PPPs, the firm has previously advised the Kenya Urban Road Authority on the Prefeasibility study of the proposed Nairobi Beltway Project as well as a project developer that was negotiating a privately initiated proposal for the development of the Kenol-Makutano-Sagana A2 Highway in Kenya.
