The recent growth in interest in the hydrocarbon resources of Uganda has also driven interest in other sectors such as mining where we have advised clients on Uganda’s licensing regime. We see renewable energy as a significant growth area for Uganda and have advised local clients in the Solar energy area.
We also advise on real estate transactions, security of title as well as Uganda’s land tenure system generally. Uganda’s housing and commercial real estate sector has had steady growth but has scope for more growth if long term development financing can be brought on board. The key legislation in this sector is the Registration of Titles Act but other instruments such as the Land Policy are important.
