Our Main Commitments

Full and direct dedication of experienced partners to their clients which allows a higher quality of service and more responsiveness. Flexible structure allowing much more competitive fees.
Assisting our clients “from A to Z”: we actively intervene in all the processes for which we assist our clients with, since the very start (organization, preparation, anticipation, development of strategies) until their definitive closing.
Providing comprehensive and detailed tax, legal and business advisory, consulting and assistance services, regarding domestic and regional (OHADA, CEMAC, etc.) laws and regulations.
Advising on the best way to mitigate/avoid any potential conflicts, as well as highlighting relevant tax and legal advantages or opportunities that there may be available, depending on the specific activities of our clients in the country.
Obtaining complete elimination or substantial reduction of undue amounts claimed by the Administration in the framework of Audits, Inspections, or Controls in strict compliance with the provisions of the applicable laws and regulations, avoiding in most cases they need for starting Court processes.
