Named in Financial Afrik as one of the 100 economic and financial influencers in Africa, Dr Fall has practiced law in Senegal and France as well as being Principal Legal Counsel of the African Development Bank (AfDB), during which time he designed and implemented legal and institutional reforms of the mining sector in Guinea, including the re-negotiation of its mining contracts.
