Andrew Moran KC and Anthony Kennedy are the authors of Commercial Litigation in Anglophone Africa (2nd Ed Juta), an authoritative work which details the broad framework of the private international law rules in operation in each of the sixteen Anglophone jurisdictions considered: Botswana, Gambia, Ghana, Eswatini, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa,  Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The second edition, published in December 2022, provides a refined explanation of 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.

In the first webinar hosted by Thoughtleaders4 Disputes on 6 October 2023, the panel discussed the anti-suit injunction or interdict, which is a powerful tool in the court's weaponry when dealing with both domestic and cross-border commercial disputes. Courts in Anglophone Africa, and especially those in Nigeria and the Republic of South Africa, have recently given guidance to litigants on the requirements which have to be satisfied in order to obtain anti-suit relief.

Andrew Moran KC and Anthony Kennedy will be joined by Babajide Ogundipe for a second instalment taking place on 29 January, entitled “An explanation of the regimes governing the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in Ghana, Nigeria and the Republic of South Africa”.  Andrew Moran KC will once again chair the session.
