Global reach

Our global network of offices is strategically located in many of the major energy hubs. They also happen to be the most important centres for international dispute resolution. We have built up an enviable network of trusted contacts in virtually every other country around the world. Whatever your problem and wherever it may be, we are perfectly equipped to deal with it.


We have been providing hands-on advice on projects and matters in the African continent for decades.

We advise on transactions and disputes in Common law, Francophone and Lusophone jurisdictions in North West, East and Sub-Saharan Africa. Our track-record includes assistance to clients, often on site, in some of the most challenging business environments, across the entire continent.  Some of our Partners have worked as in house counsel in Africa, have unrivalled know-how and experience, both transactional and contentious, in particular in Angola, Mozambique, South Africa, Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania and Nigeria.

The Africa Group is a global, multilingual team of Partners and Associates with a recognised international practice in their respective fields of expertise, ranging from international trade, finance, energy projects, insurance and reinsurance to commercial disputes. A number of our team members are nationals of the relevant jurisdictions and understand the local context better than anyone.

The Africa Group operates from our London, Paris, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai offices. It focuses on Southern African Development Community (SADC) jurisdictions and advises multinationals in the mining and commodities sector, upstream and downstream energy players, lenders, private equity houses, export credit and multilateral agencies. It also advises on projects and disputes in OHADA member states.

Our offices in Singapore, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong ensure we have excellent coverage in Asia. We have long worked with the yards in Singapore and Korea and now also do the same with yards in China. We are excited to be closely involved with the development of energy projects across the region, including in particular China and Indonesia and power projects in Mongolia. Many of our team in our Asian offices are fluent in the languages of the region.

With offices across Europe, particularly London, Paris, Monaco and Hamburg, we are on the doorstep of many of the most important companies in the oil and gas and renewables spheres. It is not coincidence that we count so many of them as clients. Our proximity means that we can offer you a personal service and can manage the crucial relationship between our input, your corporate function and your project team, wherever they may be.

We can also trace our earliest experience back to the first European projects. Because we have been used to dealing with the difficult environment of the North Sea for so long, we understand the complexities of projects in the industry and have the experience to handle them.


Our LATAM team is made up of lawyers with a special interest in the region, many of whom are fluent Spanish or Portuguese speakers.

We believe in building a strong relationship with you, an ethos which is important to the region. We build and maintain those relationships by spending time with the leading local law firms across LATAM. We regularly visit the region, particularly Brazil, Mexico and Colombia, to speak at conferences and seminars and to ensure regular face-to-face contact.

Not only do we understand the industry, we understand the LATAM culture. If you are looking to invest in the region or have issues arising out of existing projects then we can give you the guidance you need.
