Banking and Finance


Rohn Proctor has a solid legal practice across a full spectrum of legal banking and finance matters, from secured and unsecured credit arrangements to compliance advices and corporate governance assistance.

Our banking and finance knowledge is built over many years of working with the biggest banks and financial institutions in the country. We understand the ins and out of transactional banking, which allows us to anticipate challenges before they arise, when drafting, negotiating, and closing transactions secured by all types of real estate, personal or intangible property.

The firm provides innovative solutions regarding troubled assets through debt restructuring, and default situations with debt collection, through litigation when it’s the best strategy; or arbitration, when resolution process can be more efficient than courts.

Rohn Proctor recently took part in a program organized by ILFA (International Lawyers For Africa) and EALS Legal Excellence Academy, during which leading law firms such as Mayer Brown, Shonubi Musoke & Co. Advocates, Africa Legal Network's MMAKS, Al Tamimi & Company shared their valuable legal experience in relation to banking and mining finance.

We had an overview on African debentures, comparing the domestic practice, challenges and similarities in the East African Community, investment protection, data protection and banking privacy, and islamic finance under Principles of Shariah.

The program took place on the eve of the 28th East Africa Law Society Annual Conference and General Meeting held in Bujumbura, Burundi, on the theme: One Region, One People: The Role of the Law and the Legal Profession in Defining the Future of the East African Community. Needless to say that we have a lot of improvement to do but this is a place for Rohn Proctor to grow and be part of the change and the regional integration by joining forces with the pioneers already at work. We are glad to say that data protection and banking privacy’s already a reality in banking, which can be an insurance for investment in Burundi and Rohn Proctor is eager to assist with multi-faceted experience.
