  • Significant Matters


Oil and gas projects in Africa require English Law capability, knowledge of petroleum regimes and industry expertise; three key skills which very few other firms have managed to combine in a single team.

We are the first ever law firm to combine those three key skills in a virtual legal hub in Africa. Our team includes lawyers with deep oil and gas industry expertise; English law qualified solicitors and barristers; as well as African lawyers conversant with petroleum contracts and regimes far beyond the jurisdictions where they are actually based.

Our oil and gas experts, situated in Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda and the United Kingdom, work seamlessly together to service our clients across the African continent. We also have close relationships with law firms in other key African hydrocarbon jurisdictions, such as Mozambique and Nigeria.

Our offering is differentiated by its comprehensiveness as well as its competitiveness in the current market. It covers:
