ISLP provides pro bono legal assistance to governments and civil society organizations in developing countries, leveraging global legal resources in alignment with client needs to support just, accountable and inclusive development.
What We Do
ISLP provides pro bono legal assistance to low-income country governments, CSOs and marginalised communities, supporting transparent stakeholder engagement and community-inclusive development.
ISLP leverages high-level legal expertise to address regulatory, contractual, investment and trade structures within the context of large-scale development, helping governments and civil societies build just and accountable legal and regulatory frameworks.
ISLP offers solutions to direct investment challenges, from its growing program of work focused on social impact and the structuring of investment vehicles to advising governments on tax competition, base erosion and profit shifting.
Where We Work
Though historically focused on sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, ISLP is increasingly focused on Latin America, Eastern Europe and the CIS, and is further expanding its footprint in East Africa.
ISLP has a well-established program of providing advice and support to governments across sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, including advising on the renegotiation of natural resource contracts and establishment of legal and regulatory frameworks with regard to investment, tax and trade. In addition, ISLP has enacted multi-faceted programs to empower civil society participation in the overall development of several countries in Southeast Asia, particularly Myanmar, as well as provided support in relation to Anti-Bribery & Corruption and Civil Society Space in Eastern Europe and the CIS.
While ISLP’s priority is to maximize the impact of existing projects, proposals for new opportunities in new geographies are welcome.
