Commercial Litigation in Anglophone Africa, 2nd Edition

The second edition of Commercial Litigation in Anglophone Africa 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.

In this authoritative work, the authors, Andrew Moran KC and Anthony Kennedy, identify and provide 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.

The authors have also provided comprehensive coverage of the potential availability of an anti-suit injunction (in common law jurisdictions) or anti-suit interdict (in Roman-Dutch law jurisdictions). The second edition details the further entrenchment of the principle of forum non conveniens into the civil law of jurisdiction in the Republic of South Africa.
