Organising regular events for all members of the firm is pretty much synonymous with the Liedekerke approach 'we work hard but play hard as well'. A number of events such as the Liedekerke Summer Event, the Liedekerke After Summer Event, the Liedekerke Revue, our regular afterwork drinks throughout the year, ‘brain maniac’ breakfasts in the firm, etc… are recurring events that allow us to connect with each other more outside the professional working environment which obviously has a positive impact to the cooperation in the office as well. Soak up the cool atmosphere that is strong at these events by watching some after-event movies.

Our offices

Our thorough understanding of key market players’ needs, combined with wide-reaching technical experience of the law and strong local know-how, enables us to offer optimal solutions to our clients. In addition to resolving our clients’ legal issues, we also provide administrative and operational support, including in Lingala, Kinyarwanda and Kirundi.

Sub-Saharan Africa is a booming market. Chosen by many investors, the region offers a wealth of opportunities in sectors as diverse as agribusiness, digital, energy, financial services, transport, industry, telecoms and even retail. These investments are very much needed, especially due to demographic explosion and increasing urbanization.

With regional governance consolidated notably through the OHADA and an increasingly attractive tax system, the region presents an increasingly favourable environment for investment. However, to seize the commercial opportunities Africa offers, local know-how and reliable partners on the ground are essential.

From its offices in Kinshasa (DRC) and Kigali (Rwanda), Liedekerke offers its clients unparalleled experience and support in Central Africa, allowing them not only to seize opportunities but also to navigate and overcome the challenges of the African market.

Our Team

Both offices anchor our presence in the Sub-Saharan region and reflect our commitment to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda and Burundi. Liedekerke is very much committed to the region’s future.

Our understanding of the local legal systems and cultures enables us to cultivate relationships with skilled law firms in jurisdictions across Africa where we do not have offices, and to select the right local counsel for every assignment.
