Law firm in Cameroon | D.Moukouri & Partners


MOUKOURI & Partners is a leading corporate and commercial law firm in Cameroon providing outstanding and cost-effective legal services to clients involved in all the sectors of the economy.

The firm was set up in response to the demand for locally-based lawyers with the international exposure and specialized expertise required to maintain high professional standards.

With offices situated at the heart of the Cameroon economic capital in Douala, home to government offices (tax, customs, law courts, Chamber of Commerce), ports authorities and top-notch multinational corporations, D. MOUKOURI & Partners is within the heartbeat of the business community in Cameroon.

We offer full legal assistance to clients and advise on high-profile deals including infrastructure, telecommunications and energy projects in Cameroon and on cross-border transactions. We have so far offered exceptional legal services to our clientele including private clients and sophisticated multinational corporations based in Africa, North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

The litigation and arbitration services we offer reflect a deep understanding of the duality of the Cameroonian legal system (based on both Civil law and Common law) and comply with the high ethical values expected from the firm.

Our Partners and Associates speak English, French and Spanish. They are mostly dual-qualified lawyers and are among the pre-eminent legal minds in Africa, as they enjoy cross-domain specialisations acquired in Africa, in Europe and in the United States of America.

Our team has a research-oriented approach and focuses on being responsive, on innovating and offering high level of specialized expertise through a deep understanding of our clients’ issues and desired outcomes. We diligently handle their work, and support them in achieving their goals.

Well grounded in OHADA law (Unified Business Law applicable in 17 countries in Africa), D. MOUKOURI & Partners is the only law firm in Cameroon, that has conceived, organized and sustained an international OHADA training programme, under the scientific supervision of the OHADA Permanent Secretariat. The « OHADA Professional Days », the firm’s annual training programme on the harmonized business law practice in Africa attracts law firms’ and companies’ delegates from all over the 17 member States.

For over a decade we have gained recognition from the World Bank for our contributions to the Doing Business and Public Procurement programmes.
