François De Senneville | Fieldfisher
Skip to main content
I am known for my expertise in international tax law and African business law (particularly OHADA). An international tax specialist with more than 25 years' experience, I specialise in assisting international organisations in establishing, developing and reorganising business activities as well as advising on acquisition structures and tax audits. I frequently advise clients on structuring foreign investments in Africa.

An expert in structuring the implementation and development of companies on the African continent, I provide legal and fiscal assistance to secure and manage the inherent complexity of development projects in Africa.

In addition I have extensive experience in corporate restructuring (including business model reorganisation) in and via Mauritius. This technical know-how is enhanced by my Franco-Mauritian nationality - a major asset for operations in Africa.

Before joining Fieldfisher Paris, I was Head of the Africa Desk at Lazareff Le Bars. I previously headed the tax department of the Deloitte France African Cluster, assisting clients with their operations in the Maghreb, West Africa, Central Africa, Southern Africa and Mauritius.

I hold a DESS in business and tax law from the University Paris II – Assas and was admitted to the Paris Bar in 1995. I am an executive member of the Africa / OHADA permanent Commission of the Paris Bar.

I am fluent in English and French.

What others say…

We wanted to thank you for the fantastic job the Africa Group has done for us in Mali. It's incredible to see how in a few days you got a solid grip on so many of the challenges we were facing and brought resolutions that a few days ago seemed impossible. Seriously I cannot praise you enough or thank you for your service.  We truly appreciate your firm's support which stands out from your competitors in these more challenging jurisdictions." – Chief Administrative & Compliance Officer, Valiant Integrated Services
