I’m Sonia Mavouna, a lawyer at the Paris Bar and the founder of African Legal Factory. I began my career with the international law firm Clifford Chance as a private equity associate in the Casablanca office. I have worked with the most prestigious investment funds such as Actis, Améthis, Wendel, DPI and Helios on transactions in French-speaking Africa in the banking, education and agri-food sectors.

While working with probono on a number of startups and incubators, I quickly realized that legal services were too expensive for entrepreneurs inFrench-speaking Africa. Moreover, there was very little legal information available online for entrepreneurs to simply understand how to legally hold their startup or learn how to prepare for raising funds.

Faced with this huge problem, I took up the challenge of finding a solution by launching the African Legal Factory to provide entrepreneurs with training and legal support. ALF has now become a movement made up of a community that fights on a daily basis to make the law accessible to investment players in Africa.

Our DNA is made up of law, new technologies and love of others. We aim to merge legal expertise and technology, providing practical legal information, accessible services and fostering a virtual infrastructure that turns legal challenges into opportunities.


Courage: ALF values courage as a noble and ongoing quest. It encourages individuals to act boldly, question convention and overcome their fears in order to improve and succeed.

Giving & Sharing: ALF’s core value is to give without expecting anything in return. Embracing the idea that knowledge is free and abundant, the company promotes a culture of generosity and sharing between experts and novices.
