Colin&Colin is a results-oriented law firm offering a wide range of legal services to both new entrants and well-established businesses in Rwanda with particular expertise to offer legal advice and services to foreign investors.

We help our clients navigate through the constantly evolving Rwanda legal environment that is characterized by frequent changes and ambiguity in the actual application of legal norms, which may pose serious challenges to foreign investors, in particular. We at Colin&Colin are uniquely qualified to address these operational challenges in the Rwanda context and our law firm has the necessary legal expertise, resources and flexibility to overcome matters of various complexities.

We see our role as a local legal counsel in being first-to-call when our clients require high-quality and effective legal advice to facilitate their activities in Rwanda. This might include examining complex multi-party loan agreements for their compliance with Rwanda legislation or hiring/firing personnel; representing a client in negotiations for an investment agreement with Rwanda authorities or assisting in obtaining relevant licences to undertake necessary business activities; litigating in court on behalf of a client over a multi-million dollar dispute or assisting in obtaining visas for staff.

Based in Kigali, Rwanda, we work with multi-national and Fortune 500 companies, financial institutions (including regional development banks), the governments of different states, and small and medium-sized businesses, along with start-ups.
