SCLO prepared Sudan’s Merger Control chapter at LexisNexis Library (https://www.lexisnexis.com/uk/legal). The chapter examines the merger control regime in Sudan through scrutinising the laws, regulations and practice with the aim of identifying the initial steps required to form a merger. The chapter further clarifies the thresholds enacted by law which are mandatory for compliance with the law. An insight was given on the:
- Companies Act and regulations;
- Competition Regulations and Anti-trust;
- Criminal liability for failing to comply with regulations;
- Notifications and acquiring approval to form a merger
- Sudan’s thresholds; and
- Sectors’ regulators
Moreover, the questionnaire identifies monopolies according to the Sudanese laws, and how joint ventures can be caught under the national control provisions.
The chapter was prepared by Wael Abdin (Managing Partner), Dalia Obeid Ibrahim (Associate) and Fatima O'Khair (Paralegal).
SCLO is currently co-counseling with Pinsent Masons in representing a client in East Africa in three arbitrations concerning the extraction and transportation of crude oil, where the opposing party is a quasi-state entity from the Subcontinent.
