Recognising this, WerthSchröder Inc. has expanded its international network through the establishment of its AFRICA DESK. The concept is based on an approved and tested network, which allows to offer legal services in inter alia Angola, Benin, Botswana, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Chad, Ghana, Guinè Bissau, DRC, Ethiopia, Liberia, Kenya, Malawi, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, Soa Tome, Senegal and Zambia.
At the helm of the AFRICA DESK stands Professor Dr. André Thomashausen, a German attorney and senior law lecturer of the University of South Africa, with 35 years’ experience in legal consulting, contract drafting and negotiation, litigation and arbitration. Professor Thomashausen is also a sworn court translator for German, English, French and Portuguese.
Other than most legal services offered in Africa, Africa Desk retains the control over the work done in the target country, inclusive the reporting and the handling of the financial affairs of the matter. Rather than simple referrals WerthSchröder Inc. offers its clients an integrated service for which it remains responsible, including corporate services (company registrations), as well as legal translations into and from all major languages.
