Siaw has worked on various landmark cross-border finance deals in Africa. On the sovereign side, his firm represented Rwanda on its debut $400 million Eurobond in 2013 and Namibia on its debut $500 million sovereign bond issue in 2011. The Firm has also acted as adviser to Cote D'Ivoire, Gabon, Zambia, Senegal and Nigeria on other fundraising projects.
