Aceris Law’s Mauritania Arbitration Lawyers Desk is a dedicated team of lawyers at Aceris Law, a specialised international arbitration law firm, which accompanies clients involved in arbitrations concerning Mauritania, i.e., where Mauritanian law applies, a contract is executed in Mauritania, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Mauritania, or the Mauritanian State or a Mauritanian State entity is involved. We can meet clients directly in Nouakchott and are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, through video-conference.
