Africa

Morgan Lewis lawyers have assisted clients with projects in more than 40 African countries. We seamlessly connect lawyers from our London, Paris, Frankfurt, Moscow, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Houston, Beijing, New York, and Washington, DC, offices to craft customized, innovative solutions for companies operating in Africa or seeking to capitalize on its tremendous growth.

We advise clients on major oil and gas projects; liquefied natural gas (LNG) matters; mining, power, and telecommunications projects; mergers and acquisitions; and corporate and financing transactions. In addition, French-speaking lawyers in our Paris and London offices have strong backgrounds serving clients in francophone Africa, including an understanding of the French-based legal codes and harmonizing treaties that govern many francophone African countries.

We offer truly integrated services to successfully guide our clients pursuing ambitious and complex projects. Our lawyers advise on host government investment agreements; feedstock, product sales, and tolling arrangements; construction, project finance, joint venture, and shareholding agreements; financing and capital markets; and public procurement, tax, environmental law, real estate, regulation, and competition issues.
