Elite law firm network, Interlaw, has announced that the UGGC Africa network has integrated two major law firms in Côte d’Ivoire and Cameroon. These two new offices of the UGGC Africa network (Dirabou & Associés in Côte d’Ivoire and D. Moukouri & Partners in Cameroon), have joined Interlaw, expanding its reach across the region.  

In Cameroon, UGGC Africa / D. Moukouri & Partners, is a leading full-service law firm, assisting major clients involved in all sectors of the economy. The firm was set up in response to a demand for locally based lawyers with international exposure, expertise and professional standards. Our Cameroonian partners, located in Douala, are highly experienced in new technologies, digital and fintech law. 

Based in Abidjan, UGGC Africa / Dirabou & Associés covers a wide range of services in all areas of business law and advises Ivorian and foreign companies operating in various industries, services, financial management, real estate development and others. The team has a particularly high experience in corporate, mining, energy, environmental, financing and infrastructure law. 

Ali Bougrine, Managing Partner at UGGC Africa and UGGC Avocats, comments: “We are very proud that UGGC Africa members in Côte d’Ivoire and in Cameroon, have joined the Interlaw network. Both firms are highly regarded in their respective jurisdictions and provide corporate law expertise of the highest international standards, with a strong regional and pan-African focus. 

“This will also expand Interlaw’s presence across Africa, enabling the network to collaborate with talented colleagues and the best independent law firms across the world, providing best-in-class legal services to our clients.”
