OHADA Business Law & Commercial litigations

An organization must always ensure that its commercial interests are respected in order to improve its competitive positioning. It must also react to challenges: non-performance of its partners’ contractual obligations; non-payment of its receivables; unfair competitive practices; and even, sometimes, disputes between partners.

Whether a conflict can be amicably resolved or settled, or if a trial is necessary, companies need the support of experienced professionals with in-depth sector knowledge. Dudieu Advocates prides itself on supporting our clients with a team of consultants who understand the issues and risks and can advise on the right strategy.
