Ali Bouramand


Ali's specialised expertise in Africa projects and extensive “on-the-ground” knowledge and experience has enabled him to advise multinational companies in the telecommunication, agro-food, energy and natural resources sectors but also international financial institutions and governments such as the African Development Bank and various West African countries. His practice is focused, in particular, on mining projects as well as the infrastructural and energetically aspects of those projects.

Ali's work has led him to consult with major international groups such as Orange, Zain Telecommunications, General Cable Inc., Glencore International PLC, AngloGold Ashanti and Nestlé, as well as junior mining companies in their transactions in Africa.
