East & West Africa

Giampolo Law Group represents numerous clients, ranging from multinational corporations to start-up ventures and local governments and agencies. Throughout East and West Africa countries, GLG has experience helping clients with International Law and Dispute Resolution, International Trade and Telecommunications. GLG’s Africa Practice has responded to client needs throughout the African continent, pioneered techniques for African infrastructure finance and development, and successfully supported clients on arbitration, litigation and other dispute resolution matters.

International Law and Dispute Resolution

With the goal of avoiding disputes and the attendant costs of litigation, GLG has advised developers, governments, financial institutions and other parties in Africa in commercial and public international law disputes in the regional dispute centers and under the leading arbitral regimes and international tribunals worldwide. GLG has an extensive network of relationships with many of the leading firms on the African continent, with whom the firm has regularly worked. This includes, when necessary, providing support to such lawyers in domestic judicial proceedings to either enforce arbitration awards or litigate matters not suited for arbitration.

International Trade

GLG offers comprehensive services in the area of international trade and market access counseling. Whether a company is experiencing an antidumping duty or customs law problem in the United States, import restrictions, trade disputes in third countries, or WTO litigation, GLG can assist. We represent companies making industrial, consumer and agricultural products all over the world. With the expiration of quotas, we have worked with numerous textile and apparel companies to protect their access to the US market by preparing them for possible antidumping cases on textile and apparel products.


GLG has advised clients throughout the world on matters related to the introduction of competition in the increasingly competitive African telecommunications sector. GLG’s work for these clients is extensive and includes advice on general corporate and contract; structuring of finance and investments; trademark, copyright and trade secrets; licensing; and regulatory matters.
