Regulatory Practice

With Rwanda’s push towards a regulatory framework that favours doing business while reiterating transparency in corporate affairs and stricter compliance requirement for business across legislation and sectors, RMS Regulatory Practice helps businesses navigate the changing legislative landscape and the regulatory framework. We have advised business on all forms of regulatory aspects including licensing requirements, corporate compliances, foreign investments, securities regulations, overseas direct investments, cross-border mergers, restructuring and liquidation transactions. We often interface with regulators and law enforcement authorities and provide representation and legal advisory services on matters such as tariff determination, licensing, performance regulation, adjudicatory proceedings, immigration and tax procedures and proceedings. We routinely represent our clients before diverse regulators such as Rwanda Utilities Regulatory Authority which regulates diverse sectors such as telecommunication, energy, transport, etc; the National Bank of Rwanda which regulates and supervises the financial institutions, and the Capital Markets Authority which regulates and supervises corporations listed on the Rwanda Stock Exchange. We also represent our client before enforcement authority such as the Rwanda Revenue Authority, Rwanda Investigation Bureau, etc.
