Dr Aboubacar Fall (Partner) and Mrs Codou Sow-Seck (Senior Associate) from GENI & KEBE have authored the Senegal chapter for the recently published International Comparative Guide to Shipping Law 2015.

The publication, now in its 3rd edition, provides a broad overview of common issues in shipping laws and regulations in 41 countries.  As a key port for West Africa, Senegal is an important jurisdiction in shipping circles.  The chapter written by Dr Fall and Ms Sow-Seck analyses the important aspects of shipping law in Senegal, providing important information for international practitioners and in-house counsel seeking to understand maritime rights, responsibilities and opportunities.
“Maritime claims can occur anywhere in the world and practitioners will be at an advantage if they understand the basics of the legal framework of the environment in which they occur”, explains Dr Fall, who is the President of the Senegal Maritime Law Association and a Titulary Member of the Comité Maritime International (CMI). “Senegal is a signatory to the UN Convention on the Carriage of Goods by Sea (Hamburg Rules) and can be an attractive jurisdiction to action maritime claims.”
The Guide is published by the Global Legal Group and can be viewed online at
