Our practice spans across Africa’s eight regional economic communities, providing a specialised division that caters to the needs of multinational players. This tailored approach ensures that our legal assistance is not only comprehensive but also specifically adapted to the unique challenges and opportunities presented by the African market.

Africa’s eight regional economic communities (RECs) are key components of the African Union’s architecture, each playing a crucial role in economic integration and policy coordination among member states. Here are the eight RECs recognised by the African Union:

  1. Arab Maghreb Union (AMU) – Established in 1989, the AMU includes Algeria, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, and Tunisia.
  2. Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) – Established in 1994, COMESA promotes economic integration among its 21 member states, which include nations like Egypt, Kenya, and Zimbabwe.
  3. Community of Sahel-Saharan States (CEN-SAD) – Established in 1998, CEN-SAD aims to create a free-trade area among its member states, which include countries like Burkina Faso, Mali, and Nigeria.
  4. East African Community (EAC) – Re-established in 2000, the EAC fosters deeper cooperation between its 7 member states, including Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania.
  5. Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) – Established in 1983, ECCAS focuses on promoting economic cooperation and collective self-reliance among its 11 member countries, such as Angola, Cameroon, and Gabon.
  6. Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) – Established in 1975, ECOWAS is one of the more dynamic RECs, promoting economic integration in all fields of economic activity among its 15 member states, including Ghana, Nigeria, and Senegal.
  7. Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) – Established in 1996, IGAD primarily focuses on development and environmental control among its 8 member countries, such as Ethiopia, Somalia, and Sudan.
  8. Southern African Development Community (SADC) – Established in 1992, SADC aims to further socio-economic cooperation and integration as well as political and security cooperation among its 16 member states, including South Africa, Botswana, and Mozambique.

These RECs play pivotal roles in their respective regions and collectively aim to enhance economic stability, reduce poverty, and increase trade opportunities across Africa.
