Mouhamed Kebe, Managing Partner of law firm GENI & KEBE, has been named as one of 2016’s top 50 business lawyers in Francophone Africa by Jeune Afrique.

For over 20 years, Mr Kebe has been advising investors in the region. Jeune Afrique noted his advice to China EXIM Bank on its €305 million loan to the Senegalese government to construct a highway that will join the new international airport with the key cities of Mbour and Theiss; his appointment in a major commercial arbitration against a French multi-national and his work to re-draft the Commercial Code for Mauritania.

“It is a great honour to be recognized in Jeune Afrique,” said Mr Kebe, “because it reflects the very interesting business opportunities and legal developments that are occurring in our region. At GENI & KEBE, we have a motto: To us, Africa is not a continent, it is our home. We are proud to be working with our clients and partners to support economic growth and social development in our region.”
