DS Lawyers Canada announces the opening of an office in Dakar

MONTREAL, May 25, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Canadian-based firm DS Lawyers Canada is pleased to announce the opening of an office in Dakar in partnership with DS Avocats France, under the name DS Consulting Africa.

Founded in Paris in 1972, DS Avocats France was the first law firm in France to identify itself as a brand, "DS". The firm opened an office in China in 1986 and expanded further in Europe, South-East Asia, Canada, North Africa, Africa and South America. DS is one of the leading French corporate law firms with an international scope, comprising more than 300 law professionals throughout the world.

In 2016, DS France and DS Canada have founded DS Consulting Africa in Dakar to assist their local and international clientele in Sub-Saharan Africa.

DS Consulting Africa relies on the vast expertise of its network of professionals, serving a large range of clients—particularly African, French, Canadian and Chinese—in both the private and public sectors.

Through DS Consulting Africa, DS Lawyers Canada provide their clients with expert knowledge of the specific features of African economies and contribute their numerous technical skills. This results in an efficient partnership as DS provides assistance during their growth and addresses the range of client's needs in Africa.

DS Lawyers Canada has offices in Quebec, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. The Dakar office is managed by Me Seynabou Kandji, also in charge of the activities of the firm in neighbouring countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.

DS sponsors the Economic Forum of Senegal in Canada organised by the Bureau Économique du Sénégal au Canada to be held in Montreal on May 27, 2016.
