Increased international investment and accelerating economic growth in Africa in general and in Anglophone Africa mean that businesses located both within and outside these jurisdictions will increasingly demand and require advice on cross-border commercial litigation. As the scope and scale of economic activity increases, the law governing commercial litigation will have to be developed and refined to reflect Africa’s importance as a commercial hub.
In Commercial Litigation in Anglophone Africa, the authors, for the first time in a work of this nature, set out the broad framework of the private international law rules in operation in each of the sixteen Anglophone jurisdictions considered (Botswana, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe).
The authors identify and clarify the law to be applied as it relates to: (i) civil jurisdiction over commercial disputes involving a foreign element; (ii) the enforcement of foreign judgments; and (iii) the availability and nature of the interim remedies, in each of the sixteen jurisdictions addressed.
