Kwame Dougan is a securities attorney with significant experience in commercial litigation, venture capital, and commercial contracts drafting.
Counsel to entrepreneurial leaders and emerging companies with global operations.I help individuals, governmental and non-governmental organizations, academic institutions and private investors to execute complex transactions with significant legal, tax, and social implications.Recently, I developed the legal strategy for commercializing and licensing technology to governmental actors in Africa and the MENA region, addressing sovereign immunity, bribery (FCPA), and intellectual property theft risk.
I routinely advise investors and startups how to:

– minimize certain risks when investing overseas by identifying and incentivizing joint-venture partners
– Handling tax, VAT, and regulatory issues as a non-resident business
