This book is an updated edition of Beit Le Bars' book Pratique du droit des societes en droit de l'OHADA. The OHADA treaty (Organisation pour l'Harmonisation en Afrique du Droit des Affaires/ Organization for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa) covers 17 African States - mostly former French colonies from West and Central Africa - that largely followed the French legal model. It is a welcome addition for n-French speakers interested in arbitration and corporate law in the OHADA countries. The book will be of particular interest to readers from the English common law background and those who seek to understand the legal system in the OHADA countries in a more detailed and practical way. It will also appeal to investors, attorneys and law students interested in the subject.
Benoit Le Bars specializes in international arbitration, corporate law, and the law of OHADA. In addition to his work as counsel, he serves as president, sole arbitrator or co-arbitrator in a wide range of complex international arbitrations (notably ICC, CCJA, and UNCITRAL).
