Home / Our firm


The MATADI & ASSOCIATES law firm, abbreviated as M & A, was created in 1982 by Master MATADI Nenga GAMANDA, then still a lawyer at the Court of Appeal of Kinshasa. He had previously spent seven years as a partner (since 22 January 1975) in the LOKWA MUKENDI law firm.


The firm has consecutively had its headquarters situated in several places in Gombe, Kinshasa: the Bonanza building; avenue de l’Ecole; the Résidence Nathalie which is opposite the golf court on the Boulevard du 30 Juin; the building of the French-Congolese House of Commerce; avenue des 3Z (Avenue Roi Baudouin) and the villa number 158B of the avenue du Livre.


After much effort, the firm acquired its own building, half of the first floor of the Shabani concession, situated at 74/76 avenue des Huileries.


The firm is a bilingual (French and English) firm of a total of 12 lawyers; 8 of which are full time and the remaining 4 are temporarily unavailable due to either postgraduate studies abroad, or to perform specific functions for the UNICEF. Half of our lawyers are women.
